Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business

Week-long Celebration Launched at the Senedd for Wales Tourism Week


A week-long celebration of the tourism industry is planned for this year’s Wales Tourism Week – May 15-21 – which will be launched at a reception in Cardiff.

The Wales Tourism Alliance (WTA), the voice of the tourism industry in Wales, is co-ordinating a week of activities in association with Visit Wales and the tourism industry.

Speakers at the Senedd reception will be WTA chair Adrian Barsby, Caravan and Motorhome Club chair Grenville Chamberlain, National Assembly for Wales’s Tourism and Hospitality Cross Party Group chair Suzy Davies AM, and Ministerial Tourism Advisory Board chair Margaret Llewellyn, OBE.

This year’s Wales Tourism Week theme aims to highlight the stars of tourism in Wales as well as raising the profile of the industry, highlighting its huge revenue generating value and the job and career opportunities it provides.

“We want tourism associations and businesses to engage and showcase the fantastic breadth and depth of talent we have here in Wales,” added Mr Barsby. “This is what really counts and what makes us able to deliver that vital economic contribution to Wales and our local communities. Unlike other industries, tourism benefits reach all parts of Wales.”

A tourism summit on the theme of internationalism will also be held on May 18 in Llandrindod Wells where Ken Skates, Cabinet Secretary for Economy and Infrastructure, will be the keynote speaker.

A full listing of the events taking place can be found on the Wales Tourism Alliance website:

The WTA, along with its partners, is calling on tourism associations, trade organisations and businesses across the country to undertake events that highlight the importance of the industry over the week. Any organisation wishing to add an event to the list can log on to the website and input the details.
