Join North Northumberland Tourism Association? Why would I?
NNTA is the oldest-established of the Tourism Associations in Northumberland – it’s been around 35 years now, and grows stronger every year. The Association has a long track record of ‘being there'; to represent and promote Tourism businesses in our area.
The most important thing about NNTA membership is the fact that for about 60p per week we become part of a body of passionate local businesses able to lobby and influence on our behalf.
We are ‘connected’ to the Tourism decision-makers - the County Council, the Destination Management Organisation, the National Park and the Northumberland Coast AONB Partnership - and are able to shape and influence the things that matter to YOUR business. We’ve been part of campaigns to support Tourism which have led to wonderful TV and advertising exposure, and national Awards for Northumberland.
We've secured grant funding to achieve all manner of infrastructure projects, from coastal volunteer projects to bus itineraries, and of course the wonderful wildlife film NNTA commissioned. See it at bit.ly/secretkingdomseasons
We've also run several valuable members’ training courses for free (or almost-free) which have been highly praised. And we send you regular newsletters to keep you up-to-date with what’s happening in Tourism - and can promote your events or services to other businesses that way, too.
NNTA also represents members' interests in all sorts of ways at different business groups and forums. All done by Tourism business owners, as passionate volunteers, on your behalf.
And now, we've invested thousands of pounds in this fabulous new website, which portrays North Northumberland beautifully - and presents your Business Listing to potential clients and guests, with a link back to your own website.
So we really hope you will consider membership to be a vital part of making sure small businesses here in the north of Northumberland are heard, and can influence strategic development of the things which affect us.
All this for around 60p per week. One annual payment of £35. It is the most valuable few pounds you can spend, to secure the interests of Tourism in our area. Why wouldn't you?
You can Join Now by creating your business listing - it will then be checked and published.
