English Tourism Week is a week-long celebration of events showcasing the quality and vibrancy of the visitor experiences and the value our industry brings to our nation. Accommodation, pubs, restaurants, destinations, attractions and tourist information centres are all invited to participate.
ETW14 will take place between 29 March and 6 April 2014, that’s next week! Preparations are already underway but it’s not too late to get involved.
This year’s campaign is encouraging even more destinations, businesses and organisations to use the week to showcase the value our industry brings to local communities and to the national economy. There are plenty of tools and support for organisations in the build up to the big week. Participation can also help put your hospitality and tourism business on the tourism map!
You may be running a bed and breakfast establishment, pub, café, local attraction or be the managing director of a national hotel or restaurant chain… every sector counts! So take advantage of English Tourism Week to promote your business.
It might be that you already run an annual event that you can schedule during English Tourism Week; or you could create a new event or hold a local competition; or if you’re communicating you could add a banner to the bottom of your emails and flyers to show your support for the week. It doesn’t have to be big or costly; the simplest ideas can be really effective.
By organising your own event under the English Tourism Week 2014 campaign you will raise the profile of your business and be adding to the combined efforts of the week to raise awareness with local residents, their visitors and key decision makers. Get involved and inspire local residents to discover the destination on their doorstep! View English Tourism’s slides (below) to learn more.
