We aim to help you improve your bottom line through specialist coaching, workshops, webinars and masterclasses for your tourism business...
...whether it is learning from other businesses, making social media work for you,
filling your quiet times, the BAD (Bookings, Arrivals and Departures) challenge,
increasing visitor spend, tackling a long-standing issue with the help of an expert
tourism adviser or seeking to grow your turnover or profitability, Destination
Staffordshire Support for Tourism Businesses offers a great opportunity to help you grow your business.
We are pleased to confirm that we have had the ERDF funding confirmed so we are in the process of designing our Business Support syllabus.
ERDF funding will only cover funding for SMEs, so please look at the terms of assistance to see if you are covered. Non-SMEs will also be welcome, so give us a ring.
Winning Moves - our business support partner
We have engaged Winning Moves once again to take forwards our Business Support.
There is a few fresh faces and some more familiar. Come to our launch event on the 2 March 2017 at Uttoxeter Racecourse and meet the team and find out what they have planned. You can attend either at lunch time or tea time so we will see you there.

A select group of tourism experts and business coaches
Full day best practice visits to leading Staffordshire
businesses to explore a key tourism theme.
Half day interactive sessions with leading tourism

business, need help or advice to grow or want to follow up

What is a SME
SME stands for small or medium sized enterprise. Under the New SME definition from the European Commission (2.2.1) an establishment should have:
Turnover less £25 million
Gross Assets less the £12.5 million
Employ less than 250 (FTE) employees and that does not include apprentices.
The business can not be owned by a non-SME.
Who is it for?
It is aimed specifically at all tourism businesses based in Staffordshire with fewer than 250 employees (SME) but large businesses can take advantage of our specialists.
How much does it cost?
There is no charge for participating SME businesses for the first 12 hours of assistance, thanks to funding from Destination Staffordshire and the European Regional Development Fund
