Mind the Gap: Addressing the Tourism Divide


This summer, The International Festival for Business (IFB) 2014, will be held for the first time in the iconic city of Liverpool. The IFB 2014 is the largest global concentration of business events during the year and will attract business delegates and trade intermediaries from around the world, with the aim of stimulating the UK economy through increased trade and investment.


This year the tourism industry will have a significant presence at the festival.  We would be delighted if you were to join us for VisitEngland’s free Regional Growth Conference, Mind the Gap – Addressing the Tourism Divide, on June 10th 2014 at the Museum of Liverpool. 

The conference will focus on the opportunities and challenges facing the regional growth of tourism around the country. Headline speakers include: The Lord Shipley OBE, Deputy Chair, Regional Growth Fund Independent Advisory Panel, Helen Grant MP, Tourism Minister and Evan Davis, Economist, Journalist & BBC presenter. With London booming, where does that leave the rest of England? Experts from destinations, transport and the tourism industry will debate how we can work together to address the widening gap between the capital and the rest of England.
