The Tour de Yorkshire is on its way to Calderdale on Sunday 6 May and to help local businesses make the most of the occasion, further information sessions have been organised by Calderdale Council and Welcome to Yorkshire.
Following the session already held in Halifax, members of the tourism team and representatives from Welcome to Yorkshire will be at Hebden Bridge Town Hall on Monday 26 March from 2-4pm, offering advice and information about this exciting event.
The tourism team will also be hosting information session as part of the Luddendenfoot ward forum at St Michael’s in Mytholmroyd on Thursday 19 April from 6.45pm.
There’ll be advice for businesses on promotion, including brand guidelines for the race and key messages, as well as the opportunity to ask questions.
Calderdale Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Economic Strategy, Cllr Barry Collins, said:
“The Tour de Yorkshire offers an exciting opportunity for businesses both on and off the route.
“The race is growing in popularity each year, and this year, Calderdale will host the start of the fourth day of the race as well as the day’s first categorised climb.
“This means that the borough is likely to be key location for visitors and these information sessions will provide advice to help businesses make the most of the event.”
