Programme details are still being finalised, but there will be a focus on industrial regeneration alongside TMI’s usual mix of topical content that will appeal to all members.
Details will be announced as soon as available, but for now, please mark the date in your diary for what promises to be another unmissable opportunity to keep up to date with latest developments and learn from the experience of other destination management professionals, both in formal and informal conference sessions.
Initial information is at www.tmi-events.org.uk with more details and booking available soon.
What do you understand by the staycation effect – is it domestic tourism in the round, the phenomenon of UK residents choosing to holiday in the UK instead of abroad or UK consumers forgoing booked holiday accommodation in favour either of staying at home and going on day trips, or staying with friends and relatives instead of in holiday accommodation?
Is the trend continuing? And is the divide between London and the rest of the UK getting wider?
The TMI/Tourism Society event on 25 September, sponsored by the Camping & Caravanning Club, is your chance to hear the latest from VisitEngland on staycation trends and implications, and from industry speakers on how to capitalise on the staycation effect. And to share your destination’s experience of its impacts – good or bad. For more information, click here
Through our relationship with New Mind / Tell Us, we’re pleased to announce that a special 30% discount has been agreed for any TMI members working in destinations who’d like to attend the forthcoming Knowledge Exchange at the Crystal in London on September 25 – 26.
