I am pleased to announce that the date of the British Destinations 2017/18 Annual Conference will now be Monday 19 March 2018.
The date has been selected to allow us to radically alter the format for the conference and hold it as a long one day, joint event with the Tourism Alliance in London. The venue is still to be confirmed but the outline plan see it to commence at 10:00 with key strategic sessions through to 15:30 including a working lunch. The conference will then move to the House of Commons to take in the Annual Tourism Parliamentary reception ending at 6pm. The new format will allow us to: attract even high-profile national speakers, significantly increase the size and breadth of audience involved, allowing our members to network with senior representative from most key tourism trade bodies, their members and other of influence within the tourism industry. I hope that you will support the change of emphasis and the event itself. More detail will follow shortly but in the meantime please diary the date
Can I also take this opportunity to remind you that the last day for early bird discounts for the TMI annual convention in Manchester 30-31 October is tomorrow Friday 15 September 2017: https://www.tmi.org.uk/event/14/tmi-annual-convention-2017.htm
