How to assist and support Rural Tourism SMEs?

We want to know how rural tourism SMEs currently receive technical and advisory services and define Best Practice in the field.

Our project seeks to investigate the content and quality of technical and advisory services currently provided to Rural Tourism SMEs to produce a "Best Practice Guide". Please participate in our survey, and we will send you a copy of the guide when it is produced.
