Save The Date - TMI Digital Conference 12 May in Cheltenham
The speed of change in the digital world, coupled with the need for some destinations to evolve their digital models in the aftermath of recent DCMS guidance on State Aid, means that TMI will once again be holding a ‘Digital Destinations’ conference this spring.
This will be on Monday 12th May at Cheltenham Racecourse. This is also the venue for the VisitEngland awards event on the night of the 12th, so it will merely be a case of arriving early for those keen to take part in both events. There will also be an informal get-together on the night of Sunday 11th for delegates keen to arrive early.
All delegates will receive a complimentary ticket to return to the racecourse on a race day.
More information will follow soon at http://www.tmi-events.org.uk

Government support for flood hit destinations and tourism businesses
Saturday’s Government announcement of a £2million support package to help tourism busineses and destinations get back on their fee following this winter’s severe floods has been welcomed by both VisitEngland and the Tourism Alliance. VisitEngland has a free practical guide for tourism businesses which can be viewed and downloaded here.
Ufi Ibrahim, Chair of the Tourism Alliance, contrasted this response to that to the 2001 foot and mouth crisis, stating that “Tourism has created a third of all new jobs in the UK since 2010. The Government is to be applauded in recognising this and establishing a fund to help get the tourism SMEs that are the lifeblood of many small communities back on their feet so that they can continue this vital role. “
