We held our inaugural AGM on May 1st 2013 at a members venue The Heronstone Hotel Bridgend.
The Bridgend Tourism Association AGM brought together a lot of good constructive help for our tourism businesses. Churcher Communications and Alexandra Marr Associates helped to focus minds on the individual attractions as well as the many unexpected delights the area has to offer. It’s up to us as a BTA and as tourism operators to put together our individual stories and packages and get them out there!
We are delighted to welcome 3 new Directors to the board and hope our journey into our second year will bring us good prospects.
We have 2 projects at present
The Bridgend Tourism Association will develop a communications strategy for the BTA utilising the generic strategy produced for the South East Wales Tourism Forum by its coordinator John Wilkinson. We would also like appropriate training and support for board of BTA and employees. We have recently taken on an Admin assistant to provide a point of contact for our association members.
“Let Me Make Your Perfect Day”
Bridgend Tourism Association wishes to appoint a suitably innovative and experienced trainer to develop and deliver the programme of training. This will involve conceiving and implementing a number of training sessions for a minimum of 30 people centered on the following or similar themes of customer service and communication, complaint handling and sense of place.
We also have an ongoing Project developing a voucher app for our members that will run alongside the “Dare to Discover” theme.

The successful Local Food Talks initiative, which brings together producers, suppliers and buyers to promote quality local food and drink to visitors and local people, is being launched in South East Wales on Monday 18 March at the fantastic Ffresh Restaurant at Wales Millennium Centre.
And you’re invited.
South East Wales Local Food Talks is coordinated by local authority food and tourism development teams; hospitality, food and catering training providers; Capital Region Tourism and the Welsh Government and works with suppliers and buyers to help them ‘buy local, please customers and make money’.
We want to introduce tourism businesses of all sizes to the amazing range of Welsh producers that are available in the region and to help those producers to sell their products more effectively and to more people.
We do this through a programme of workshops, networking events and ‘meet theproducers’ familiarisation visits. You can find out more or book a place on any of these events by following the links in the Networking & Workshops section below.
And this all kicks off with our launch event at Ffresh on the 18th. We would be delighted if you would come along and meet the South East Wales Local Food Talks team and a whole host of producers who can help you ‘buy local, please customers and make money’.

Making a destination “work” effectively from a visitor perspective is the essential ingredient of destination management. To do so needs buy-in from the wide range of stakeholders involved in the delivery of that experience, working in partnership to make sure that there are no gaps, or failures, in the provision.
