Patrons & Strategic Partners

An influential network of partner businesses and organisations

Patrons & Strategic Partners

Cumbria Tourism’s Patrons and Strategic Partners form a core network of influential tourism-related businesses, organisations and individuals who share our goals, energy and enthusiasm to harness their collective expertise for the benefit of the county’s tourism industry.

Not only do these key partnerships provide a range of valuable benefits and opportunities for members, but crucially, they enable us to increase and accelerate our delivery against Cumbria Tourism’s key priorities as the county’s official Destination Management Organisation (DMO).

Together Cumbria Tourism’s Patrons and Strategic Partners are helping us to champion and financially invest in the delivery of effective destination marketing and, in doing so, raise the value of tourism on behalf of all of our member businesses.

There are a limited number of places for businesses who wish to get behind us to further grow the reputation and value of the industry. In return, these valued partners receive a number of direct organisational benefits for their investment.
