Angie and I are back in the office today, after 4 days in Cornwall. Working of course, no holidays here! We watched the storms from the comfort of our makeshift office at the stunning Headland Hotel and experienced the most wonderful winter sun too as we drove across the rolling hills - Ah, we love our jobs.
We were in the county representing a number of clients and also to attend the Cornwall Tourism Summit for 2020. The event was a very different proposition to the Three Counties and Cotswold Tourism Forum, which we attended last week.
Summit Speakers included Stephen Darke from the Department for Culture, Media & Sport (DCMS), Kurt Jansen from the Tourism Alliance, Malcolm Bell from Visit Cornwall and a fascinating keynote speech from Will Higham on the future trends that the industry will likely face.
The key takeaways from the event were impeccably valuable, so we'd thought we'd share a few with you...(thank us later)
There is lots of change afoot in the tourism industry, with the impending EU exit happening tomorrow (31 January), the new tourism sector deal and the likely cabinet reshuffle, but it’s clear that with change comes opportunity.
We can help you identify and harness those opportunities to help grow your business. We’re more than happy to meet for a coffee and chat through how we might be able to help. Let's have a chat, shall we? Call 01242 250692.
