One week left to book for TMI Hot Topic goo.gl/ccZ92X
With 10 days left to the TMI Hot Topic, “Crisis What Crisis? Funding our Destinations” event in Cambridge on Friday 18 May, bookings are still coming in.
Our speakers will cover funding opportunities through the Heritage Lottery and the Arts Council, examples and case studies from destinations in the UK and Europe taking innovative approaches to funding, the role of place, how good data collection and performance data can help in bidding for project funding and how to add revenue value to destination web sites. Delegates can choose from workshops on business tourism, on how digital platforms and GPS can be used to take visitors off the beaten track and decrease dependency on honey pot sites, or take in a sneak preview of the luxurious and newly refurbished University Arms Hotel. Full programme details on the web site.
If you’re arriving on Thursday afternoon, there are a very few places left on the guided walk and punt tour – booking essential here. If you can’t make that, come along to the networking BBQ supper in The Pint Shop. This independent venue is famous for its fine selection of beers, wine and British food. Tickets are £30, bookable here. If you’re thinking of bringing others from your team, we are still offering a discounted rate for non member guests on your booking. Full details and to book here
