Staff from an independent company representing 500 tourism businesses in Powys, Ceredigion and Meirionnydd are on their way to Welshpool on their annual series of roadshows.
Mid Wales Tourism (MWT), supported by the Tourism Partnership Mid Wales, is teaming up with Finance Wales and the Welsh Language Board to hold seven trade days across the region to meet existing and prospective new members.
Finance Wales will provide advice on business development issues while the Welsh Language Board will outline the help available to encourage the use of the Welsh language in tourism businesses.
The meetings begin with a Mid Wales Tourism Trade Day at the company's headquarters at Machynlleth Railway Station on Tuesday, September 28, and will be at The Loft at Coed y Dinas on October 8, where a huge range of information will be available to businesses.
The event, which begins at 11am, will include a variety of short presentations with plenty of time for questions, discussion and lunch.
