Looking to expand into international markets and have your product ‘Market Ready’ as international travel slowly returns? Looking to grow international sales? Looking to understand the domestic market better and get their business?

Welcome to Yorkshire and VisitEngland would like to invite you to Taking England to the World - a one day training programme which aims to help your business become international-ready.

Developed as part of the Government’s £40M Discover England Fund, this course is designed to equip you with the skills and foundations to develop and promote your product for sale in international markets.

This programme is adapted from the Taking England to the World programme which has been delivered previously in Bath and Bristol.

SMEs are likely to particularly benefit from the training but any larger organisations interested in participating are welcome.

Who is it for?

This training programme is aimed at suppliers from all sectors of the English travel industry – from accommodation to attractions, and from excursions to experiences. Whilst particularly suitable for SMEs, larger organisations are also welcome to attend.

What will it cover?

This training programme will include the following modules:

  • Inbound and domestic tourism value and market overview
  • Obstacles to market
  • Opportunities abroad
  • Meet the markets
  • Defining your product offering
