"CTA membership has helped us to make many useful contacts and the training and 'trade days' which members have discounts to attend, have proven invaluable."
"As people new to the area and new to holiday letting we have found the CTA invaluable. I completed the Ambassadors course which was brilliant on 2 levels. First of all I have learnt so much about the rich culture of the area I now live in, I am able to pass this on with authority and enthusiasm to our guests. Secondly we have made friends with other members personally as well as professionally. We have found our fellow members to be both friendly and generous. People are very willing to share their experience, things that work well and stuff to avoid, which has made this new adventure so much easier for us."
"The CTA helps to bring people from within the tourism industry together, enabling valuable contacts to be made as well as providing important networking opportunities."
