Council coordinates online forum to support tourism businesses

In response to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our local tourism and hospitality sector, the Council has coordinated an online forum to help support businesses.

The forum, which already has almost 90 participants, gives businesses the opportunity to share their own experiences of coping with the current crisis, ask questions, and receive practical help and advice (all tailored to the tourism and hospitality sector) from a number of industry bodies, including TNI, as well as legal, health and financial specialists.

The forum is open to all businesses in the tourism and hospitality sector in Mid Ulster. The webinar sessions take place every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11am.

Any business interested in joining should contact the Council’s Business Engagement Officer on: 0786 7520 681 or email:
