Tourism changes – a personal view

As a very strong supporter of both VisitBritain and VisitEngland, and the roles they are charged with delivering under the Development of Tourism Act, I am concerned by some aspects, and the potential consequences, of recent changes.

I attach a copy of an article that will appear shortly (in the Tourism Society journal)  as a personal commentary on the rearrangements and the new Discover England Fund – and would, if you wish, be pleased to discuss these views with you.

Public funding is scarce, so it must be applied most appropriately, as we work together to optimise the benefits that tourism can bring.
