Get Your Business Digital in 2015
The SMEs live events are a series of interactive and inspirational live sessions aimed at small to medium businesses in the tourism industry.
The six part series, produced for the European Commission's Directorate General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, aims to support, provide insight and give guidance while introducing practical advice that can be implemented as part of the day-to-day running of a business. Each live event will address important trends related to how visitors are using technology to discover, plan and share their travel experiences and will be led by different industry experts who have experience and knowledge of working in the sector.
Each live event can be watched from the EC event page, DTTT Youtube Channel, or embedded on Partners websites. After each live event, the recording on YouTube will still be available and these videos can also be embedded into the partner's websites in order to make them available to as many SMEs in Europe as possible.
The six parts of the series are designed to specifically meet the needs of SMEs in tourism and each will tackle a different topic looking at the unique needs, opportunities and challenges faced by businesses:
