Robin Barker, President of TMI commented: “We're delighted that TMI is coming back to Leicester, one of only an elite group of destinations to host a TMI event on more than one occasion. Great things have been happening in the city and we're always keen to hear about these and ideas that we can share amongst members across the country. The combination of location, venue, accommodation, commitment to service and added value mean that I'm convinced that we'll have an outstanding event."

Martin Peters, Chief Executive of Leicester Shire Promotions, added: “The TMI has a great reputation as a strong influencer across the tourism industry and as the tourism body for the city and county, we’re particularly proud that we’ve been able to work with them to bring this conference to Leicester. We will continue to work with Curve, Maiyango and other partners to support the conference and ensure that delegates get the best experience of the conference and of the city during their stay.”
