VisitBritain has launched an online training programme to help agents worldwide showcase UK 2012 events.

Called BritAgent, the programme is designed to help agents promote thousands of events happening throughout 2012 as well as during the period of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Along with giving details of all the Olympic events taking place, the programme covers topics such as accommodation and transport.

It also promises inspirational ideas for other things to see and do across the UK, as well as information and planning for other events taking place next year, such as the Diamond Jubilee and World Pride.

Patricia Yates, director of strategy and communications said: -¬---This programme is an important part of our efforts to tell the world that Britain is the place to be next year."
