[C]umbria Tourism, the county’s official destination organisation will hold its Annual General meeting at the Rheged Centre, Penrith on Thursday 23 June 2016.
The meeting is a great opportunity to network with fellow members and share opinions on tourism in the county as well as hear about new initiatives and the latest marketing opportunities available.
This year’s event welcomes guest speaker Malcom Bell, CEO of Visit Cornwall, who will give an insight into another leading UK visitor destination and their key priorities for the coming months.
During the meeting Mike Turner, Director of Treetop Trek Ltd. will be appointed as chairman of the Commercial Members Committee, and Philip Johnston, Owner of Coppermines and Lakes Cottages in Coniston will take up the role as Vice Chairman of the Commercial Members Committee.
Ian Stephens, Managing Director at Cumbria Tourism says; “The AGM is an important day for Cumbria Tourism and its members to come together and reflect on how the industry has performed over the past year. There is no doubt that recent months have been very difficult, but it has been clear to see the commitment and determination of tourism businesses in Cumbria and the resilience they have shown during the most challenging of events.”
Ian continues; “We are delighted to welcome Malcom Bell, CEO of Visit Cornwall to share insights and priorities from another leading UK destination as it is always invaluable to share good practice and get an insight into how others operate and the challenges they face in the same industry.”
