Website (portal for information)

This is not a consumer facing website – but is an ‘umbrella’ website for Dorset tourism. To provide information on Dorset tourism trade matters to support the DTA to promote, market and develop tourism in Dorset. A key aim of the website is to signpost to other relevant websites including the Destination Management Organisations in Dorset as well as other organisations. To increase the levels of cross promotion between the existing websites to maximise business for Dorset.  It promotes credibility of the Dorset brand across various audience groups, not only pan Dorset but further afield. 

Annual conference for members

The first conference of the DTA is on Tuesday 28 March 2017 at Kingtson Maurward College.
