About this event

The National Churches Trust is supporting historic places of worship by providing free training for all involved with churches and chapels. Join us to discover how your place of worship can benefit from tourism; helping encourage visitors and raising funds.

This session will look at how you can develop a sustainable income from tourism by creating unique and bookable Experiences for groups.

This session will include:

  • attracting UK and international tourists
  • getting to know the group travel market
  • advantages of working with international groups
  • types of inbound travellers
  • thinking about group size, time of year, visitor segment
  • pricing the package to market
  • making it bookable
  • marketing, what is your USP?
  • building industry relationships
  • Q&A time

All involved in historic places of worship are invited to attend.

This event is free of charge.

We will present a 45-60 minute talk, with lots of useful ideas and content and links to follow up later. We'll then have at least 30 minutes for questions and comments. We'll also encourage you to share ideas and questions in the chat.

The presentation (in pdf form) will be available to all attendees afterwards.
