Beamish – The Living Museum of the North – is celebrating after being named as finalist in the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2016.
The museum has been shortlisted for the Large Visitor Attraction of the Year Award, by VisitEngland, the national tourist board. The winners will be revealed at a ceremony at Blackpool’s Winter Gardens on 8th March, during English Tourism Week.
“Two of our Communications Team attended Tourism Growth’s ‘Managing Your Reputation Online’ training course in Durham. They came back with a lot of really good, practical ideas to use within the business.
We’ve already got a big audience on social media – but the course has given us ways of building it up even more!
Tourism Growth’s ‘Selling Skills for Restaurants‘ training course – which 4 of our Catering Team went to – was excellent. It’ll really help them to upsell and boost our sales across the site.
The trainer was fantastic – a sector specialist with great knowledge and enthusiasm.”
