Join our partner, Destination Plymouth and guests at the third Tourism and Visitor Economy Conference, sponsored by City College Plymouth, on Thursday 26 November from 12.30pm to 4pm.
Taking place at Boringdon Hall in Plympton, this year’s theme will be ‘Maximising overseas visitor opportunities’ and is highly topical given the recent funding grant to the South West of £5 million from government to market the region internationally.
Maureen McAllister, Director of the South West Fund will explain details of how the programme is progressing and guest speakers on the day will explore how our local tourism organisations can make the most of this funding.
Other guest speakers include; Diane Nettleton (Nettleton Hotel Group), Simon Friend (Vice Principle – Curriculum and Quality at City College Plymouth), Richard Veal (New Mind), Diane Burke (Sales and Marketing Director of Great Western Railway), Victoria Hatfield (Economy & Tourism Manager, Exeter City Council and Chair of Visit Devon).
Chair of Destination Plymouth, Duncan Currall and Chief Executive, Amanda Lumley will also provide information about opportunities for Plymouth businesses as well as an update on plans for Mayflower 400.
