Central Coast tourism-based businesses can now register for free online events to hear expert advice about the domestic market, how to sell bookable products online, and how to work with distribution partners.

Parliamentary Secretary for the Central Coast and Member for Terrigal Adam Crouch said the webinars and training are hosted by the NSW Government’s tourism agency, Destination NSW.

“This is free, expert advice for local tourism operators and will help attract new and returning visitors to the Central Coast,” Mr Crouch said.

“Some parts of our community have been hit by the triple whammy of fires, flood and COVID-19 over the past few months. The webinars and training will help local businesses to upskill and adapt.”

Destination NSW Chief Executive Officer Steve Cox said the events were an important step on the road to recovery for NSW’s tourism industry.

“The Restart Series are webinars addressing the pressing issues facing our industry right now such as how to attract customers in the domestic market, which is important for operators who have previously focused on international visitors,” Mr Cox said.

“The Discuss and Develop Your Business workshops are practical sessions where operators can hear directly from Destination NSW’s industry development team and guest speakers.”
