£4billion was contributed to UK economy as per the latest research. To attract more conferences, Cumbria tourism is about to launch a new proposal in this place with free conference finding services. Business tourism creates 16 million excursions every year as per VisitEngland. The £1million Conference and Learning Centre built at Whitehaven’s Beacon Museum and conferencing facilities and other new developments like £16million investment at Windermere’s Low Wood Bay Resort Hotel are some of the projects that would tap the important market as explained by Cumbria tourism.
To quote, Rachel Tyson, Head of Marketing and Sales at Cumbria Tourism, ‘’ This year will see millions of pounds’ worth of developments enhance conference facilities in Cumbria. Although business tourism is traditionally associated with cities such as Manchester and London, we have some truly unique venues and executive retreats in spectacular scenery, you simply can’t find in other parts of the country. It’s an emerging area for us, but we want to get the message out there that we have a free conference finding service to help put companies in touch with venues which offer a completely different corporate experience.”
To quote, Colin Fox, Group Marketing Manager at English Lakes Hotels, Resorts & Venues, ‘’ Business tourism is hugely important to the Lake District and is certainly a major part of the plans for Low Wood Bay Resort & Spa and the extended and increased quality of the facilities at the venue. The development is expected to encourage more incentive and business tourism and if the Lake District is awarded World Heritage Status this July then a world class resort would definitely be a boost to the area.”
