Nottinghamshire Tourism Summit Enjoys Sell-Out Success

Visit Nottinghamshire’s much anticipated Visitor Economy Summit, which was held at Eastwood Hall last Thursday 1st of June, was a sell-out success. Just short of 100 guests from organisations across the local tourism and hospitality sector attended the event.

The Summit which had been organised by Visit Nottinghamshire, the region’s tourism board, has become one of the biggest annual events in the local tourism and hospitality industry’s calendar. The Summit represented a chance for businesses and organisations in the sector to come together, network, hear from industry experts, and discuss the future of travel and tourism in the region.

During the summit, guests heard from recruitment and career experts The Futures Group, prominent researchers working in the UK Business Visits and Tourism Sector, the UK’s national tourism board Visit England, Sherwood Observatory, Nottingham City & Nottinghamshire County Councils, Nottingham BID, and the team at Visit Nottinghamshire.

The event has come to highlight the huge importance of travel and tourism to Nottingham and Nottinghamshire’s local economy. Visit Nottinghamshire’s Business Development Manager, Annette Thornley, commented:

“It’s great to see our annual Visitor Economy Summit go down so successfully again this year. Despite difficult challenges both globally and nationally, the fact that our event has sold out again this year shows that Nottinghamshire’s Visitor Economy is as vibrant and thriving as ever.

“We know that in the last few years the tourism economy has been worth approximately £1.9bn to the local Nottinghamshire economy annually, which just goes to show how important the sector is to so many jobs and businesses. Today’s event has really reflected that.

“It was a pleasure for us to organise this event and I’m incredibly proud of what Nottingham and Nottinghamshire has to offer. Thanks to all our amazing guests, sponsors and guest speakers who made today possible.”

The summit is one of the many ways in which Visit Nottinghamshire supports the local visitor economy, by supporting businesses and organisations to forge new connections and get the latest insight from industry experts.
