North Norfolk Tourism Forum
North Norfolk Tourism ForumIn recognition of the importance of tourism as an industry in the District, the North Norfolk Tourism Forum was the first sector round table established by North Norfolk Business Forum (NNBF) which is intended to be the voice of tourism locally and to influence how the Council spends its limited budget on tourism. Money will also be passed through NNBF to the group in order to deliver actions where appropriate. All partners around the table bring their own particular skills and interests but have a common purpose, a better tourism industry in North Norfolk.
To address the specific needs of different economic sectors, and to help each sector make the most of the opportunities available, the North Norfolk Business Forum is establishing a series of Round Table working groups that represent the industries forming the backbone of the local economy. As North Norfolk is heavily dependent on tourism, this sector of the economy was chosen as the initial focus.
We will develop a long term strategy to achieve the collective aims of all businesses involved with tourism across North Norfolk. The immediate priority aims as identified in the recent survey are as follows.
- To encourage quality in all aspects of tourism including; services, produce, hygiene, promotion and marketing.
- To develop and encourage links with local suppliers
- To work with North Norfolk businesses, forging close local links and extending those links across the various business sectors
- To develop a strategy for training, using when and where ever possible, local trainers and course providers
- To encourage all local businesses to adopt the 'Welcome Host' training initiatives
- To work with other North Norfolk businesses to introduce and support apprenticeship schemes
- To work with local schools and colleges to develop courses and projects to help school leavers find employment in North Norfolk
- To encourage North Norfolk businesses to adopt a 'green' approach by focusing on supporting local suppliers, developing recycling initiatives and promoting the use of all the available public transport
