English Tourism Week Conference and Parliamentary Reception

English Tourism Week Conference

The ETW Conference that we run with the Tourism Society and British Destinations will be held from 10am to 3pm on 1st April at the RAF Club on Piccadilly. Bookings for this are how open and we have a really good list of speakers including the Tourism Minister, Michael Ellis giving the keynote speech. At present, the ambition is for the Tourism Deal under the Government’s Industrial Strategy to be signed off at the end of March so, if this timetable is kept to, it is hoped that it will form the basis of his speech.

Here is a link to the booking site for the conference which contains more details. As Tourism Alliance members you are welcome to invite your members to attend at the Members Rate. In addition, any member of yours that comes to the Conference will also get an invitation to the Parliamentary Reception afterwards.

If you would like to advertise the conference to your members, I’ve attached a copy of the logo that you can use along with a blurb on the conference. I will send through a finalized programme shortly – I’m just waiting for confirmation on one final speaker.

2. Parliamentary Reception

The Parliamentary Reception, which is being sponsored by The Caravan and Motorhome Club and ETOA will be from 4-6pm on the 1st April so you have an hour to get from the conference to Parliament. This year we have the Culture Secretary, Jeremy Wright MP, as the guest speaker so this may well be one of the first speeches by a Cabinet Minister after the UK leaves the EU.
