I’m pleased to announce that the rescheduled, joint British Destinations, Tourism Alliance and Tourism Society 2021 Tourism Conference will be held at the Royal Over Seas League, London SW1A 1LR, on Monday 15th November, 9.30 am for 10 am to 3pm followed at 4pm to 6 pm by a Parliamentary Reception in the Member’s Dining Room in the House of Commons.
The conference theme is rebuilding the UK tourism industry. Nigel Huddleston the Westminster, Minister for Tourism will give the keynote speech on tourism recovery plans. Nick de Bois Chairman VisitEngland will outline his recommendations on the English DMO review and discus its implications and implementation. Other highlights include: new research on the benefits of retaining reduced VAT on tourism services, work by the National Trust on climate and the need for responses from the UK tourism industry and more.
This is a major opportunity for tourism professionals and a wide range representatives from the industry to reengage with each other, to meet face to face and discuss key issues, formally and informally, and to demonstrate the importance of tourism at the heart of the Westminster Government. Please support the event and by doing so directly support your own industry as it starts the long climb to full recovery from what has now been the longest and deepest crisis that domestic and international tourism has experienced in the last 75 years.
The cost for members is £95 plus VAT. More detail regarding the events, including the booking link, can be accessed on Britishdestinations.net under the conference 2021 menu tab, or go to the page direct here.
