The British Destinations’ 2016 Annual Conference entitled “Making Destination Management pay its way” was held in Southport 19th/20th – 21st June 2016 at the Ramada Plaza hotel.
In the view of delegates it was a highly successful event; one non-member representative said of it:
“All involved in delivering this conference from Peter to all the presenters should take a bow. Excellent presentations, all delivered in an engaging and thoughtful way. Extremely useful to understand how different areas are responding to the challenges of destination development and management. If you didn’t attend, you missed a truly valuable experience”.
