The ERTC is currently taking bookings from businesses that wish to join them as Promotional Partners for 2013 and have their businesses included on the official website and in the official 2013 English Riviera Destination Guide.
Carolyn Custerson, chief executive of the ERTC, said: "By working together we're definitely stronger as a resort.
"We need to spend more on marketing the English Riviera if we are to compete effectively against other resorts.
"The English Riviera's tourism community has already achieved a great deal together.
"In just 18 months since the ERTC was launched we have been able to launch an exciting new destination website, iPhone app, Facebook and Twitter pages.
"We've also redesigned the official resort guide, modernised the provision of visitor information, created a royalty-free image library, launched four spectacular new destination videos and secured more than £2million of PR coverage.
"It is essential now to keep this momentum up if we are to Turn the Tide for Tourism in Torbay. We need the support of all the industry now."
