After the success of last year’s annual conference held jointly with the Tourism Alliance and Tourism Society on the Monday of English Tourism Week, we are pleased to confirm the details for this year’s joint event to be held 10 am to 3 pm on Monday 1 April 2019 at The Royal Air Force Club 128 Piccadilly London W1J 7PY, to be followed by the Industry Parliamentary Reception in the House of Commons. 4 to 6 pm.
Discounts of £40 are being offered to members of the 3 organising bodies and a further discount of £30 each for second and subsequent delegates from a member organisation. Due to venue restrictions attendance is caped at 150 so book early to avoid disappointment.

We are also delighted that both Quality in Tourism and Global Tourism Solutions (UK) (GTS [UK]) have again agreed 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.
