Event description

Description

Lancashire welcomes over 67 million visitors to our wonderfully diverse county each year and in turn, this generates £4.1 bn of visitor spending and supports 1 in 10 or over 59,000 local jobs in tourism and hospitality.
To continue to grow tourism we need to ensure that we recruit, retain and attract the best talent for the industry.

The event will:

  • explore current skills and employment issues affecting our tourism and hospitality businesses,
  • provide an overview of existing support for tourism and hospitality businesses to attract, inspire and develop their people and how to access this
  • gather thoughts around further skills and employment gaps and potential solutions for the future

Our workforce plays a vital role in delivering memorable visitor experiences and in providing the warm welcome that attracts both new and repeat visitors, encouraging them to return again and again. We have the ambition to help tourism businesses grow and to generate a further 5,000 new tourism and hospitality jobs by 2020, it is an ambition that is set out within Lancashire’s Visitor Economy Strategy. We are therefore working with the Lancashire Enterprise Partnership’s Skills & Employment Hub to look at how we can help tourism businesses across the county attract, inspire and develop their people.

To help us achieve this, we need to hear your views and would like to invite you to join us at this event for tourism and hospitality businesses on Monday 2nd October 2017, from 09.30 - 12.00 at Brockholes Conference Centre, located next to Junction 31 of the M6, just outside of Preston.

Please note that delegates will be provided with free parking at Brockholes for the duration of the event.

A full agenda will be released over the forthcoming weeks.
