On the Map - Business Support Workshops

If you’re a tourism business delivering visitor experiences in the Ashford Borough, or if you’re interested in setting up a new tourism business in the Ashford & Tenterden area, then join us for a series of insightful and interactive workshops that will help you to develop your visitor experiences. 

 

These workshops are part of the On the Map – Ashford & Tenterden’s Visitor Economy Programme which has been commissioned by Ashford Borough Council and is being delivered by Visit Kent. The programme seeks to develop new visitor experiences that tell the story of the incredible food & drink produced in the Ashford Borough, putting the borough at the heart of the thriving wine industry.
