e-business workshops

Get real results from your website

The Scottish Tourism Forum have programmed a new series of Tourism e-business workshops, in collaboration with Scottish Enterprise.

Workshops designed for YOU

Does your website attract enough visitors? Are they the right kind of people? Does it translate into bookings and profits? The Scottish Tourism Forum has joined forces with Scottish Enterprise to help tourism businesses get the most out of the internet.

We’re running a series of workshops on e-business – tackling everything from setting up or improving your website to being found on search engines.

The workshops will show how you can make the most of new technology without breaking the bank. The one-day courses are suitable for novices and experienced internet users.

Industry speakers will demystify using the web – explaining jargon and technical terms. We’ll also give you an expert insight into new customer trends and tell you what help is available in your area.

On hand will be speakers from Scottish Enterprise, VisitScotland and VisitScotland.com. As part of each workshop there will be one-to-one sessions, allowing delegates to get personalised advice from their chosen speakers.

The workshops cost just £30 plus VAT for each delegate to attend. The price includes lunch. Don’t miss out on the internet revolution and the benefits it brings. Book your place today.

STF’s recent series of e-business workshops have already been a huge success and proved extremely popular with attendees.

Here’s what tourism businesses who have attended this year’s workshops told us:

  • “I’m now much less timid about setting up a website and running it.”
  • “I found this event super as a platform for a start-up business.”
  • “Great tips on the help which is available. I’m now going home to update our links and key words.”
  • “Excellent advice! I’m a web novice but could understand it.”
  • “I’m off to investigate website optimisation and online availability functions.”

Expert Advice & One to One Sessions

Experts from organisations including Scottish Enterprise, VisitScotland and VisitScotland.com will be available at the workshops. We’ve built in one-to-one sessions (pre-bookable or bookable on the day) that allow you to spend 15 minutes with your chosen speaker(s) to answer your queries.

Cost, including buffet lunch: Only £30 (+VAT) per attendee.
