Visit Dorset Business Support Hub Who we work with

We work closely with Bournemouth and Poole Tourism (BCP Council) and numerous other organisations, because we know that by working collaboratively we can deliver a better service for visitors, residents and our business members.

Benefits of working with other organisations include providing a better understanding of the needs and priorities of organisations, and improving communication with tourism industry members.  This ultimately benefits both businesses and visitors.

The Dorset Tourism Association was established in 2016 as a Community Interest Company (CIC) and provides a connection with the Dorset Local Enterprise Partnership, as well as a point of coordination for other organisations in Dorset.

Below is a list of some of the organisations that we currently work with and we hope to extend our links to more organisations in the future.  If you are part of an organisation that has connections to Visit Dorset and are not listed below, please contact us.
