Tourism program hosts guest service training at Batesville Community Center


The Batesville Advertising and Promotions Commission sponsored a Guest Service Training workshop hosted by the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce, Tuesday, June 25.

The free workshop, which was held at the Batesville Community Center & Aquatics Park, was created by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism to help improve the visitor experience in the state.

Tourism Director Kyle Christopher served as the instructor for the workshop which had fifty-one participants from the local service, healthcare, dining, and banking industries.

“By continuing to educate our local workforce on the importance of customer service and hospitality, we place our community in an even better position to attract visitors and new residents. This will result in more dollars flowing through our local economy” said Christopher.

The next workshop is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 10. For more information, contact the Batesville Area Chamber of Commerce at (870) 793-2378 or
