Tourism Marketing Around Dark Skies

Leave a comment

The three National Parks in Wales all offer opportunities to enjoy dark skies. The National Park Authorities of Snowdonia, Brecon Beacons and Pembrokeshire Coast have come together to develop a joint National Park Wales programme relating to dark skies and are seeking to commission consultants to develop this work. The Dark Skies: Brilliant Parks project will show how these world-class landscapes can be enjoyed just as much by night as they are by day. This project will help promote Wales’ National Parks as high quality locations to enjoy dark skies.

The project activities include:

  1. Branding and marketing plan
  2. Suite of activities and adventures relating to the theme
  3. Short film to promote ‘Dark Skies: Brilliant Parks’ to visitors and inspire the trade to be involved
  4. Digital interactive manual to support trade engagement and product development

Proposals are due by 5th November 2015.

Funding available: £32,000
