What is the Advanced Workshop? This will be a workshop aimed at those who have responsibility for producing strategic business plans for visitor attractions. We have carefully crafted a challenging programme utilising 5 workshop sessions, short breaks for head-clearing and discussion around the content of the sessions. Please note: if one person has completed the introduction ‘Walk-shop’ they may bring up to 3 other team members.

Bookings now available: 3rd and 4th June 2020

Learning Outcomes:

  • Predicting your attendance
  • Space planning your new attractions
  • Building your cost plan
  • Analysing your Visitor Experience
  • Writing your Business Plan
  • Writing your 5-year Strategy
  • Networking opportunities
  • Career development (soon to be accredited)

The two-day ‘5 Model’ Advanced Strategic Business Planning Workshop will build on concepts and provide expanded information covered in the 5 Model Intermediate workshop. This Advanced Workshop will provide the opportunity to use your organisations own attraction data and apply the ‘5 models’ and develop the outlines of a 5-year strategy with the support of our expert host team to help where needed. Please note: You may bring along up to 4 people but at least one person must have attended the Intermediate ‘Walk-shop’

This workshop is led by experts and is open to operators of all types of attractions with 15 limited spaces.

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.
