Welsh Government Looks Forward to Legendary Year for Tourism in 2017


The Welsh Government has today (05 April 2016) confirmed that its 2017 tourism marketing campaign will celebrate the Year of Legends and released details of how tourism providers, attractions and businesses across Wales can learn more.

As latest stats show a successive annual increase in visitor volumes and expenditure, with interim figures for 2015 on track to exceed the record visitor spend of £1.735 billion set in 2014, the “Year of Legends” campaign will continue to raise the profile of Wales’s tourism offer and aims to attract even more visitors to Wales in 2017.

To allow the industry to engage in the planning process the “Year of Legends” will be a key feature of the Visit Wales tourism industry roadshows which will visit Aberystwyth, Caerphilly, Llanelli and Colwyn Bay between 10 and 25 May 2016.
