Nine Peel Region tourism businesses are participating in a tourism boost program designed to increase their exposure to domestic and international markets.

The one-on-one mentoring program has been facilitated at a local level by MAPTO and delivered by Distinctly Travel Management (DTM).

The program aims to improve the marketing and online booking capability of each business and ensure their product is promoted via a number of tourism distribution channels to key markets.

Participants are also able to network and explore collaboration possibilities with other Peel tourism operators at Tourism Boost workshops.

CEO Karen Priest said MAPTO were thrilled to be part of the program and saw great potential for Peel operators and tourism growth in the region.

“The free program of personal mentoring assists operators to become travel trade ready and set up inclusions in wholesale programs. The Peel businesses will benefit from accreditation as a result of the process, as well as networking and collaboration with peer tourism operators,” said Karen Priest.

The program is still open for other businesses to participate – for further information contact info@mapto.com.au or contact the MAPTO office on 9534 7515.
