A special one day event on Wednesday 6 March planned by Eden District Council’s Tourism Team in partnership with Hutton-in-the-Forest, will be of great interest to accommodation operators in the area.
The Eden Leaflet Swap and Networking Event will be held at Hutton-in-the-Forest historic house on Wednesday 6 March between 1pm and 3pm and has been specifically designed to give accommodation operators the opportunity to meet a wide variety of Eden’s attractions under one roof and discover what’s new and different about this year’s tourism offer within the Eden Valley, North Pennines and Ullswater area.
There will be the chance to meet representatives from around 18 Eden attractions including two of the region’s main literature distribution companies and those attending can enter a special prize draw.
In addition, between 1.30pm – 2.30pm, people attending the event will be given the chance to look around some of the historic rooms of Hutton-in-the-Forest which is the home of Lord and Lady Inglewood. The house does not officially open to the public for the season until 3rd April so this is a unique opportunity to see inside the house with knowledgeable guides on hand and discover the rich history and heritage that it contains.
“We are delighted to be staging the Eden Leaflet Swap and Networking Event at Hutton-in-the-Forest this year,“ highlights Sally Hemsley, Joint Tourism Manager at Eden District Council. “We have actively responded to tourism operator requests for such an event to happen. Around 18 businesses are taking part and we look forward to welcoming accommodation providers and others connected with Eden’s vibrant tourism industry to this event. It offers a unique chance for people to meet tourism businesses face to face, discover new products and services plus look around one of Eden’s beautiful stately homes.“
Pamela Davidson, House Administrator at Hutton-in-the-Forest said: “This is a great opportunity for businesses to meet and work together. It means that accommodation providers will be able to give visitors first-hand knowledge of things to do and places to go within Eden.”
The event is free to attend and light refreshments will be available.
