Tourism360 by Tourism Partners is a unique tourism business development tool designed for growth. Through research, consultation and review we provide information, ideas and inspiration that will grow your tourism business.
Tourism360 is the result of over 20years of experience across broad sectors of tourism. Topics researched and then discussed are what we’ve observed the more successful companies in industry do. This process identifies themes that provide opportunity for recommendations to fast track your company’s growth. Every business and business owner is unique and no recommendation is the same.
Tourism360 is a 60 point assessment. We focus on 5 key areas that primarily relate to the development of marketing activity. Themes that appear within research and consultation form the basis for reccommendations. A detailed review is delivered in writing and an in-person summary completes the assessment. Our absolute intention is for this process to be of significant intrinsic value to your tourism business.

We now have a clear picture and action plan on how to fast track our business’s growth and we are busy implementing Ben’s recommendations. Ben has a wealth of industry experience, knowledge and expertise which truly leads to delivering on his goals of information, ideas and inspiration. It was an absolute pleasure working with Ben and we highly recommend his Tourism 360 programme. - Lee Saunders & Emma Chisholm.
