Training & Education

Tourism is a people-oriented industry with the potential of providing jobs and income needed to revitalize local economies particularly in developing countries. A major barrier to achieving the full potential of many destinations is a lack sufficient training options to build the capacity of their tourism professionals. A trained workforce with both theoretical and practical knowledge is necessary to provide service with the level of quality needed to attract travelers and properly develop a destination. EJAS Travel & Tours provides these training services and has worked with a number of tourism training and support institutions around the world to build a team of trainers versed in the intricacies of destination management, tourism operations, guiding, and marketing. EJAS Travel & Tours also offers various 'train the trainers' courses and follow-up activities to ensure the tangible transfer of skills and the knowledge of how to market these new skills. A successful tourism business requires a brand that speaks to its target markets, content that successfully generates potential clients and a level of service that listens to customers' demands, all within ever diminishing budget constraints. Inbound marketing,in contrast to outbound marketing (such as paid online advertisements or direct mailings)is based on the concept of making your business easy to find and drawing customers to your website through inspiring content.

Tourism Partnerships

Partnerships leverage the tangible and intangible assets of all partners to create mutually beneficial outcomes. In tourism, stakeholders span across the planet, from the tourist and outbound operator in a source country all the way to the front-line communities, farmers and local governments at the tourism destination. Linking such a broad-array of interests requires maintaining well-nurtured relationships and an understanding of divergent yet symbiotic objectives. Our work and relationships with leaders in the tourism industry, global spread of in-country operators and deep-field experience with communities all over the world, gives us a unique position to forge meaningful and reliable partnerships. Because of EJAS Travel & Tours Ltd broad client and beneficiary base, we easily negotiate partnerships across an array of different actors to improve economic growth, social benefits and environmental conservation through sustainable tourism. EJAS Travel & Tours partnerships leverage financial, technical expertise and promotional benefits from private and government partners in exchange for improvement in stakeholder relations, cause-marketing and improved product and service delivery. These exchanges have resulted in such outcomes as increased sales, revenue and jobs; improved visitor experiences, alternative incomes for front-line communities; decreased levels of conservation threats in areas of high biodiversity; diversified production and increased profits for small farmers; and overall improve sustainability of tourism destinations around the world..
