Experience Development Workshops

In light of the current Covid-19 crisis, our industry amongst many others is having to drastically re-think how to rebuild business, demand and revenue streams. To survive, businesses will need to adapt existing products or create new revenue streams to operate both on and off-season, collaborate with others in and out of the sector, and reach new audiences to recover and drive business growth.

Funded through the European Interreg Experience project with match funding from local authority partners, Visit Kent alongside expert Chris Brant from Unmissable England, will deliver eight thematic experience development webinars to facilitate innovation and collaboration of business to generate new visitor experiences.

We would love for you to join us in exploring the essential ingredients needed to develop an unmissable experience, identifying the opportunities for new experiences in Kent and hearing directly from various success stories that could spark a new idea, allowing you to reach new markets and increase the success of your business.
To really get us thinking of our own ideas to develop new experiential products for visitors, throughout the session we will host break out collaborative working sessions where you will work with likeminded businesses by utilising the collaborative interactive platforms of this new virtual world.

You will find below the different thematic webinars and links to register. We encourage businesses to register for as many of the sessions they feel is relevant to developing their experiences:
