If selected, participants will:

Learn how to make the most of digital technology in their tourism business

Gain detailed insights into digital tourist trends

Receive up to 3 days of 1-1 specialist digital support on location and follow up support

Spend time with leading digital experts in a workshop setting

Be eligible to bid for a digital innovation grant of up to £20,000 to implement their own innovative technology idea within their tourism business (or collaboratively with others).
