GDPR - G-Day Tomorrow - Don't panic!
We have had calls from a number of members concerned and confused about the upcoming changes relating GDPR.
Firstly - Don't panic. The latest advice on the Information Commissioners Officer website (ICO) can be found on https://ico.org.uk/for-organisations/marketing/ and MWT has asked Business Wales to see if they are able to arrange a GDPR session tailored specifically to the tourism industry.
For now, we suggest that:
Electronic mail marketingThe most important thing to remember is that you can only carry out unsolicited electronic marketing if the person you're targeting has given you their permission.
However, there is an exception to this rule. Known as the 'soft opt-in' it applies if the following conditions are met;
Your Legal Requirements
Note - The customer’s rights under the GDPR do not over-ride the requirements of other legislation
It is important to note that the customer’s rights under the GDPR don’t over-ride the data requirements of other legislation. For example, the Immigration (Hotel Records) Order 1972 requires you to record the full name and nationality of all guests and to keep this information for 12 months. As such, a guest cannot ask you to delete this information from your records until 12 months have elapsed. Similarly, a customer cannot ask you to delete any financial information you are required to keep for tax purposes.
If you're unsure on GDPR and what it means then the Visit Britain Pink Books has a nice summery from the Tourism Alliance- See here for more info
Visitor Attractions | Activity Providers | Guided Tours | Workshops | Events & Festivals
MWT is looking for visitor attraction, activity providers or event organisers in Ceredigion that really want to change and improve to the way they use digital selling techniques to attract visitors.
The Real Ceredigion Experiences project is a new project run by Mid Wales Tourism, and we are seeking 12 non-accommodation businesses or organisations in Ceredigion to be selected to be part of this exciting pilot project. Businesses must be ready to take the plunge to sell online in real time and are really prepared to put time aside to make this a success.
During the course of the Real Ceredigion Experiences programme, we expect businesses to become 'Exemplars' in their own use of new digital technologies, adopting new ways of working and selling successfully on-line to reach and attract a wider audience, and to share their experience with local networks and groups.
Participating businesses and organisations will be expected to share their journey / experience. We will be exploring opportunities to develop local networks & cluster groups, and will be developing case studies in order to encourage other businesses in the area to learn from your success.

What We're Doing
MWT is promoting our office helpline number directly to visitors on our new VisitMidWales.co.uk website. We have already dealt with a number of enquiries, and made reservations direct (and commission free) to MWT members.
With TIC's reduced opening hours and some closures, some visitors still wish to book their accommodation by phone and we are taking a number of phone calls a day from visitors requesting information.
This is great for our members (and for the region) and we have found our new shortlisting option on VMW particularly useful as we can easily use this to email accommodation details and late availability lists directly to visitors.
