In conversation with colleagues it appears that not everyone that might have an interest in the sector deal and, in particular, in the emerging tourism zones proposals, is aware of the VisitBritain conference on the Tourism Sector Deal to be held on 18 September, timings and (I presume London?) venue TBC. Reading the announcement below, I’m not 100% clear from it what the level of detail that the event will go into. Future announcements on the conference may make that clearer. If not, I’ll ask the question and let you all know the answer in due course.
The original hold the date email notification reads:
Wednesday 18 September 2019
Venue to be confirmed
Following the Government’s announcement of a Tourism Sector Deal in June, I am delighted to invite you to a conference to find out more about the deal, how it will be implemented, and how you can get involved.
Key speakers from the industry and government will be discussing the major themes of the Tourism Sector deal, including: the tourism data hub, accessibility, business visits and events and tourism zones. The sessions will include a mixture of panel discussions, presentations and opportunities for questions from the audience. We will also be running a skills session and a Sector Deal Q&A.
Please save the date – 18 September 2019. More details to follow shortly.
I look forward to welcoming you to the conference.
Steve Ridgway CBE,
British Tourist Authority
