2023 Experience Development Roadshows – Live Broadcast

Tourism NI was delighted to invite NI tourism industry to their 2023 Autumn series of Experience Development Roadshows. 

These in-person sessions were open to all tourism businesses across Northern Ireland and were of particular interest to those who are developing or delivering saleable, bookable visitor experiences within the context of our tourism brand, Northern Ireland - Embrace a Giant Spirit. Please see below for a taster of what was covered on the day. 
This final session at The Everglades Hotel was broadcasted live, offering the opportunity for any industry who are unable to make it to any of our in-person locations to still hear all presentations live on the day and submit comments or questions in real time. 

The sessions covered the following topics:

  • The development of Northern Ireland - Embrace a Giant Spirit, ways to engage with the NI tourism brand and opportunities for businesses within the new Experience Development Framework.
  • The focus of tourism development across Northern Ireland in our core thematic areas of Culture & Heritage, Landscapes & Outdoor Activities and Food & Drink.
  • An opportunity to hear from some local tourism operators on their tourism journeys and how they are developing their visitor experiences.
  • Findings from the recent NI Tourism Product Review which explores the past, present and future of tourism in Northern Ireland.
