‘Star Tips for Profit’ Business Workshops

4 March 2015
Tags: News

The Forest of Bowland has some of England's darkest skies. In a light polluted country they are also an economic asset which translates into a unique selling proposition for the tourism sector. Just as people have long been attracted by the wildlife, landscapes and historic sites, now the stars offer another compelling reason to visit.

This workshop will help bed and breakfast, campsite and self-catering owners, inn and hotel managers, tour guides and anyone working in the visitor economy gear up to provide an unforgettable dark sky experience for customers.

You will get tips on making your business more dark sky-friendly, marketing stargazing opportunities, learn how others are tapping into the astro-tourism market and get practical advice on buying equipment. You will also be shown how to use telescopes and binoculars and, weather permitting, be able to view amazing stars, galaxies and planets with a mini star party.
