Cumbria Tourism is representing our members at a series of travel trade shows this autumn to forge one-to-one relationships on your behalf and put our region at the forefront of their minds. We will be also be gathering valuable information about the latest travel trends and market insights from a range of tourism specialists.
This week the team is at VisitBritain’s annual International Business Exchange (better known as ‘VIBE’), forging links with operators from across the globe. Then it’s the turn of the Group Travel and Leisure Show, where we will be representing tourism businesses in partnership with Northern Print Distribution (NPD).
That’s followed by World Travel Market in November – a huge three day event at ExCeL London, which brings together almost 5,000 exhibiting companies and more than 51,000 visitors.
The activity follows a summer of attendance at large-scale visitor events, such as the prestigious Chatsworth Country Fair, where the CT team promoted the Lake District, Cumbria, as a ‘must see’ destination.
