A FREE training opportunity for Blue Mountains tourism operators is the online training module offered on Inclusive Tourism, available from Local Government NSW.
The inclusive tourism market includes people with a disability and their carers, as well as older people and young families. Nearly 20% of the Australian population or 4.2 million Australians have a disability and, with our ageing population, this is a growing market.
The inclusive tourism group spends more than the average traveller. In the first three months of 2017, $3.3 billion was spent by the inclusive tourism market in Australia. This is why it makes good business sense to cater to this market.
To do the training, you will need to create an account on the website. However, you will be guided through this process and it is not difficult. The training takes about 45 minutes.
