We are pleased to share details of a range of exciting new wine tourism experiences developed as part of the region’s Wine Tourism Product Development Business Coaching Program.
The development of new bookable experiences in the region is great news for accommodation and tour providers wishing to stand out from competitors and offer something unique to their guests. You can take advantage of this opportunity in a number of ways, such as:
- For accommodation providers: Link to experience(s) in your pre-arrival emails as guests get ready for their trip; and/or embed Rezdy bookings onto your website to showcase key regional experiences to visitors planning their stay. This is free of charge for accommodation operators and can earn you commission on any sales, see introduction here.
- For tour providers: Differentiate your product by incorporating one of these new experiences in your tours. Contact the provider(s) to start a conversation about working together.
Please view details of the new experiences and contact details below.
