Following the success of British Destinations 2017/18 conference which was held as a joint event with the Tourism Alliance and Tourism Society in London in March 2018, it has been agreed to hold a further joint conference event on Monday 1 April 2019 at the RAF Club 128 Piccadilly, W1J 7PY. Subject to Parliament siting on that day, it will again be followed by the industries annual Parliamentary reception.
Details of the event will follow in due course.
We are also delighted to announce that both Quality in Tourism and Global Tourism Solutions (UK) (GTS [UK]) have again agreed to join us as the joint conference partners:
GTS (UK) are a leading independent tourism research company with over 25 years’ of experience working with both the public and private sector. Their STEAM model providing timely estimates of annual value, volume and economic impact of tourism is widely used by many UK destinations and tourism organisation.
Quality in Tourism has been assessing properties and driving standards across the UK for over 15 years and they are experts in the field, offering advice, support and assessments for tourism & hospitality businesses. They are currently delivering a suite of assessments, including the initiative Safe, Clean and Legal assessment which is designed to be more than just an entry-level level scheme. Safe, Clean and Legal could, we believe, now help fill the growing gap in the market between reliance on customer reviews alone and the more traditional grading assessments approach.
