Local tourism and hospitality businesses are invited to join Visit Lincolnshire and Business Lincolnshire’s Visitor Economy Conference to discover new opportunities for the sector.
The full-day event, which takes place at the Lincolnshire Showground on Tuesday 22 March 2022, showcases Lincolnshire and Rutland’s visitor economy offer and, after a two-year gap, reports on what has been put in place to build the sector back stronger.
Attendees will gain exclusive insight and be the first to hear about Lincolnshire’s Green Tourism Toolkit, which will be launching on the day. Keynote speakers from across the region include representatives from Lincolnshire County Council, Visit Lincoln, and CDI Alliance, along with perspectives from an array of independent businesses.
The event features an address from keynote speaker, Ed Gillespie. A passionate and entertaining environmentalist, Ed will be focussing on sustainability and innovation during his session, aiming to educate businesses on how to be more resilient and responsible, whilst encouraging them to prepare for a successful future.
Cllr Colin Davie, Executive Councillor for Economy and Place, will be delivering the opening message for the event. Cllr Davie says: “We are thrilled to finally meet in-person again at the Lincolnshire Showground, which is such a lovely venue! It is so important to shout about the massive achievements in the sector after COVID.
“We have many exciting workshops and interactive sessions. This really is an event we want everyone to take something away from, and we are lucky to be able to fully fund the conference for all attendees!”
