TCN are organising a major tourism development conference to take place at Bedern Hall, York – Friday September 18th, 2015.

Government has recognised that tourism is a key driver of economic growth and new jobs. Recently it has announced a number of policy decisions that could have a significant impact on tourism growth in coming years, particularly in the north of England. These include the devolution of powers to local authorities as part of the Northern Powerhouse strategy, the creation of the Northern Tourism Growth Fund, the Triennial Review of VisitBritain and VisitEngland, and the 5-point Tourism Plan announced by the Prime Minister on July 17th whose key objective is to spread the benefits of tourism more widely.

Speakers will examine the possible implications of Government policy from a variety of perspectives, and identify the opportunities that are likely to arise for tourism operators, investors, marketeers and consultants.  Details of provisional programme and booking are available here
