This week’s TMI Hot Topic speaker in the spotlight is Keith Blundell. Since setting up Blue Chip Tourism after a 20 year career in tourism destination management, Keith has worked with some of Britain’s biggest destinations including Manchester, Birmingham, Essex and the Core Cities, examining the feasibility of innovative funding mechanisms. His presentation will draw on these experiences and examples from further afield to look at developments and innovation in funding DMO’s and give delegates a clear insight into how destinations are facing up to the challenges of cuts in public sector funding and reduced income from commercial sources such as their own web sites. Keith tells us his most memorable UK holiday was camping in the Western Isles during the Summer Solstice in 1994.

Book your place to benefit from Keith’s presentation and the rest of a packed programme concentrating on the challenges and potential ways forward for funding our destinations. Early Bird rates are available until 5 pm Friday 27 April, and TMI members can book for non-members from their organisation at special guest rates.
