Set in the Moat House Hotel in Stoke-on-Trent, the convention sees a diverse programme that includes ‘Making BIDS work’, ‘Pre Election Tourism Policies’, ‘International Tourism Trends’ and ‘Destination Benchmarking’. Eminent speakers include Matthew Rice, Victor Middleton & John Till, as well as VisitEngland’s James Berresford.

Two very useful guides to EU funding in the tourism sector for the period 2014-2020 have just been published by the Committee of the Regions and the European Commission ‘s DG Enterprise and Industry and are available to download from the TMI web site. The research paper by the Committee of Regions focuses on funding opportunities for tourism available to local and regional authorities (LRAs), while the DG Enterprise and Industry guide is a useful explanation of the changed funding streams available for the tourism sector.
During the summer, the OECD published a new report with case studies looking at the development of new models of creative tourism. The case studies are used to explore the relationship between the tourism and creative sectors and point to ways in which these links can be strengthened for the mutual benefit of both. To download the whole report or individual sections, visit the OECD online library
