China Welcome Training
In the 2014 Anholt Nations Brand Index Survey, one of the two areas of relative weakness for Britain for Chinese visitors was around perceptions of ‘welcome’. As part of our ongoing training programme, Marketing Manchester is aiming to address this by running a series of China Welcome courses over the next 6 to 12 months so that we can become the most welcoming region in Europe.
This open course, which is well suited to a range of management and front line staff, is delivered by Capela China and can help you create a better experience for your Chinese visitors, encourage them to buy more and attract more Chinese visitors. It is certified by the prestigious China Outbound Tourism Research Institute (COTRI) and has been awarded VisitBritain's GREAT China Welcome Charter Mark, meaning successful participants automatically meet the criteria to join VisitBritain's leading China programme.
