Welcome to Share Wales.
Keeping up with all the latest technological ideas isn’t always easy, especially when you have a tourism business to run. If you want to better understand the technologies that can be used to put your business, and Wales, in front of your potential visitors, Sharewales is here to help.
Sharewales provides resources and learning, to aid understanding and support the use of technology across the tourism sector, to help maximise the opportunities of the digital age. It also seeks to get everyone sharing Wales better, by opening up their great content, so it can be used to improve the tourism offering to our visitors.
We want to get the digital into Wales’ tourism and whether you are an absolute beginner or self confessed geek, we hope you’ll join us in making this site a focal point in that exciting challenge.

"Growth from digital should not be limited to the tech sector – it must be widespread – driven through the adoption of digital practices in mainstream business"
“Now more than ever before, digital offers the chance to drive sustained economic recovery, but this will only be realised if we become a nation of digitally confident businesses with a digitally literate workforce.”
