Regrettably the Parliamentary authorities have announced that all public events in the Westminster Parliamentary estate have been temporarily cancelled up to and including the 15 November. This means that the associated Westminster Parliamentary Tourism Industry Reception programme to be held from 4.00 to 6.00 pm, after our joint conference can no longer go ahead as planned.
We have looked at the options available and decided to marginally extended the afternoon programme, to give more time for Q&As on some of the key issues being discussed. We have also arranged for a tourism industry networking drinks reception to follow-on immediately from the conference, in the conference venue from 15.15 – 17.00.
This will give delegate a similar opportunity to meet and network with colleagues from the very wide group of tourism interests represented on the day. It is possible but not certain, that some Parliamentary colleagues may still attend. We also hope that it will not adversely impact on too many pre planned or booked travel arrangement for either those planning to attend the conference only or planning to attend both. As per the original Parliamentary reception, the networking opportunity is kindly supported by the Caravan and Motor Home Club.
Although the numbers for the conference have already been submitted, the venue has given us a further 48 hours to add to and confirm final figure. If you were intending to attend and have forgotten to book, or are still wavering there is still a narrow window of opportunity.
