Monday 6th and Tuesday 7th June
The Business of Tourism: What are the new drivers for tourism today?
The Tourism Symposium (organised by the Tourism Society) is your chance to mix with 150 key tourism professionals from across many sectors including destinations, culture, attractions, consultancy, business tourism and hospitality. This event boasts a wide variety of interests among the audience and the 20 speakers, and is a great opportunity for learning new approaches and to make important and useful new contacts.
This year’s topic is ‘The Business of Tourism: What are the new drivers for tourism today?’ with a full programme of discussions, panels, interviews and presentations on June 7th considering how and why customers choose the attractions, destinations, venues and events that they do. Preceding this on Monday 6th will be a choice of walking study tours exploring Birmingham’s heritage and culture.
The Tourism Symposium 2016 also includes walking study tours exploring Birmingham’s heritage and culture
“The Tourism Symposium will be an excellent opportunity for heritage sector professionals to hear speakers addressing topics of direct relevance, such as festivals, cultural tourism, volunteering and the use of game-play and to pick up plenty of useful information on how and why visitors choose to visit the places that they do,” said Gregory Yeoman, Executive Director of the Tourism Society.
“The speakers and delegates represent a wide variety of businesses and sectors within tourism and one of the most appealing aspects of the event is the networking with people that you wouldn’t normally meet, from other sectors. Delegates always highlight this as one of the main reasons for attending, as well as for the information in the presentations.”
