Tourism businesses are being invited to a Forum outlining the latest developments in their industry this October. With a strong line-up of guest speakers including Cabinet Secretary for Economy & Infrastructure Ken Skates AM, Pro Kitesurfing, and Ride North Wales, it promises to be a key event for everyone involved in the tourism sector.
The Denbighshire Tourism Forum takes place on Thursday, 26th October at the Oriel House, St Asaph at 10.30am. The event offers a great opportunity for delegates to network and share experiences, knowledge and ideas. A variety of information stands will also be present including Business Wales, Clwydian Range Area of Natural Outstanding Beauty, North Wales Tourism, Menter Iaith Sir Ddinbych, Denbighshire Heritage Team, Llangollen and Dee Valley Good Grub Club and many more.
Councillor Hugh Evans OBE, Leader of Denbighshire and who is also the Cabinet Lead Member for the Economy, said:
“The Forum is a great way to meet like-minded people and find out about the latest tourism developments. It’s not only for tourism businesses, it’s a good opportunity for students and anyone with an interest in tourism to hear from those working in the industry sharing their experiences first hand.”
Ken Skates AM, Cabinet Secretary for Economy & Infrastructure said:
“Recent figures show that 2017 is really proving to be another successful year for tourism in Wales. Forums like the one in Denbighshire are really important as it gives everyone a platform to come together, share best practice, learn about key projects, and the chance to reflect and contribute to the wider tourism agenda. I’m delighted to be invited to meet local businesses and share with you some of the exciting new projects that are happening in the County and the wider North East Wales region as well as across Wales.”
Speaker Simon Jones, Owner of Pro Kitesurfing in Rhyl, said:
“I’m really looking forward to highlighting the work we do here at Pro Kitesurfing and sharing our plans for the future with the sector. Obviously, all the exciting developments happening in Rhyl at the moment will have a huge impact on the area and I hope we can all capitalise on this to bring more visitors to our region.”
The new Denbighshire Destination Management Plan 2017-20, which co-ordinates all aspects of a destination that contribute to a visitor’s experience will also be launched at the Forum. The Plan has been produced by the Denbighshire Destination Partnership with support from Denbighshire County Council, Visit Wales, private sector businesses and the wider public sector.
