7 Strategies to Engage and Activate Local Stakeholders and Communities in Tourism

We recently ran a live workshop at the Australian Regional Tourism Convention in October 2019, on how Local Government and Regional Organisations can engage their communities in Tourism activities to increase advocacy for their visitor economies.

We had such an overwhelmingly positive response from our presentation that we invited industry to attend a live webinar on 6th November 2019, and the recording is available for you below 🙂

In the webinar we use case studies from across Australia to highlight ways some organisations are engaging their communities, as well as putting our own ideas down on paper for consideration too.

Do you have any great case studies of where you have engaged your communities in tourism to share with your colleagues?

If so, then we'd love you to share them in the comments, and we can add them to this article!
