Following the meeting there were a brief series of informative talks designed to enhance tourism businesses.
Nigel McDonald spoke on the use of Using GeoCaching as a way to engage visitors. This gives them a chance to explore the great outdoors we have on offer with a treasure hunt included. This is becoming more cost-effective with installation of GPS on modern phones plus lower cost GPS systems. Nigel also talked about the benefits of the Buy-Local scheme for increasing sustainability.
Paul Davis talked about LeveragingGoogle. How understanding where your traffic was generated can help focus your business advertising efforts. This means businesses can get best value for money.
