Tourism Enterprise Development Growth Programme 2018/19

Tourism Enterprise Development (TED) Programme

Tourism is growing-make sure your business is too!

With the tourism industry seeking to double the value of tourism by 2030, we have our eyes on the biggest prize yet, one that positions tourism as a major contributor to the NI economy and identifies it as a key asset for brand Northern Ireland.

There is huge opportunity to deliver unprecedented growth from key markets, and with record-breaking numbers of holidays being taken year-on-year, the time for tourism in Northern Ireland is now.

The Tourism Enterprise Development Programme aims to address the gaps and opportunities for growth as identified by you. We have worked with industry partners and key stakeholders to carry out research into what you, the tourism industry of Northern Ireland, need to meet the objectives set for the future; from this research we have established five key areas for growth:

  • Attracting New Visitors
  • Digital Development
  • Investing in People
  • Leadership & Management
  • Product/Experience Development

With exciting plans in the pipeline for how we support you, the TED programme has been developed to help you gain access to the training and resources your business needs to get to the next level. The programme is reactive and innovative; we are bringing the knowledge to you with access to tourism specific training in the areas you need and in the manner you need it. Whether you are a new venture seeking advice on how to gain access to finance, a developing product in need of basic digital skills, or an established experience needing tourism sales and marketing advice, we are here to help you, and if we can’t help, we will tell you who can.
