Since its establishment, SECTA has grown steadily in strength, profile and influence and now brings tangible benefits to its members through partnership, promotion and services.
Members Benefits include:
Advice and Information
Information is circulated to Members at our General Meetings and via the monthly Newsletter. In addition, Committee members are available for advice on any tourism-related issues; they may not know the answer themselves, but there is a good chance, with many years of experience in the industry between them, and with contacts in many other organisations, that they will know where to go for help.
Member’s Networking Meetings
The Association usually meets annually at a venue within the SECTA area and speakers are invited to make presentations on a wide range of subjects of interest to members. SECTA also holds member training meetings covering topics of interest to members.
Closer Cornwall – Visitor Website
Closer Cornwall has been developed for members and is promoted as a destination website. It features all of the regions in South-East Cornwall covering where to go, things to do, what’s on and places to eat. The website promotes members accommodation. Members can have their accommodation business listed on the website for free.
SECTA – Members website
Members get access to this website where they can update their business listing, access and download information relevant to their membership, stay informed of the latest news, accommodation referrals, view photos of SECTA events, view committee members contact details, and a section on supplier goods and services.
SECTA has negotiated favourable insurance renewal rates with a leading insurance broker for accommodation provider members. Several members have reduced their premiums by hundreds of pounds a year.
