The Vision XS ‘5 Model’ Advanced

Business Planning Workshop

5th and 6th July 2019

Aim: discuss how the 5 models can be used in your attraction and learn how to implement the 5 models for your organisation

This will be a two day workshop aimed at those who have responsibility for producing strategic business plans for visitor attractions. We have carefully crafted a fun programme utilising 5 workshop sessions, 2 short walks for creative thinking, networking and discussion around the content of the sessions. Please note: Attendee’s must have done the intermediate course prior to attending the advanced course.

Each of the sessions will focus on the in-depth aspects of each model and delegates will work through an exercise on their own by using their own attraction data. Each workshop will bring key aspects of how to approach strategic planning and bring brief-writing alive.

The Workshop will be based in Wallingford, Oxfordshire over two days. On each day, we will build in a break, separated by an informal conference dinner on the first night.

This work-shop is only open to operators, general managers, and CEO’s of attractions with 15 limited spaces.
