The annual Carmarthenshire Tourism Summit is just around the corner - held at the Parc y Scarlets Stadium on Thursday 12th October. And for 2017 it has a new and improved format.
This year, the Summit – organised by Carmarthenshire Tourism Association and sponsored by Clay Shaw Butler - will include a full day exhibition showcasing product and service suppliers, a rolling programme of guest speakers and panel sessions, one-to-one advice appointment slots, lots of opportunities for making new contacts…and all for a lower cost fee, starting at just £5 per person.
Those involved in a running tourism, leisure and hospitality business in the region – as well as those in the process of setting up a new business - are encouraged to go along. From Planning to Marketing and from Legislation to Funding... there will be all the information they need - all on the same day and under one roof!
Nia Ball, Chief Executive of Carmarthenshire Tourism Association explains, “This really is a one-stop-shop for those involved in the tourism, leisure and hospitality in the region. It’s a day jam-packed full of the things that they need to know - and that are beneficial to them in this fast-growing and increasingly competitive industry. Feedback from those who came long last year showed us that 99% would come to the Summit again, which really highlights its importance to the industry.”

"It's very difficult to find out how our visitors find us on the internet. However, when I analyse my statistics with my hosting company, I find Visit Carmarthenshire in the top 10 of referrals. In a Google search it comes on the top page if you use key words like "Bed and Breakfast in Carmarthen". It's important to have another platform where our business can be found online and it really does work for us!"
"The one to one sessions on improving my website were really valuable. Paul Knows what's what and how I am thinking or struggling immediately! I value his input."
"We really enjoyed the Gold award winner visits. They've given us some great ideas and some real practical help. Strangely, one of the most useful things from the visits is that it's saved us a lot of time researching things that wouldn't be practical for us to try at the mill."
