A new programme aimed at boosting tourism businesses in the Glens Coastal area has been launched by Carrickfergus Enterprise with support from partners Causeway Enterprise and Northern Regional College.
Following the success of the East Antrim Coastal Way pilot programme, a new programme has been launched to cover tourism businesses in the Glens coastal area from Ballygally to Ballycastle and Rathlin Island.
Thirty tourism providers are now confirmed and on board to take part - including a range of local hotels, restaurants and operators of tourist attractions and experiences.
The overall goal of the project is to develop the capacity and confidence of these local businesses and help them take increase sales, enhance visitor experiences and fully take advantage of the huge opportunities tourism can offer. A range of support is available including business mentoring, ICT support, WorldHost training, mystery shopping and a joint marketing campaign which will include a visitor map and website.
