Southern Wales Tourism Group Travel Tool Kit
Group travel is an important sector for Southern Wales, even post Covid-19. It’s hard to think of a business within the public, private or voluntary sectors that couldn’t benefit from welcoming group visits.
South East Wales Tourism Forum
A Regional Fora was established in 2014 to drive the delivery of the tourism strategy in each region. There is a forum in each region - north, mid, south east and south west. The forum meets three/four times a year to discuss and review tourism developments and to bring together key stakeholders within the region.
The forum aims to identify:
- which individual business or destinations can work more closely together within the region
- opportunities for tourism development within the region
- the method for feeding into each forum through destination management partnerships
Bridgend County has two industry representatives as well as BCBC officers on the forum. Meeting minutes are available here.
