Leicester and Leicestershire Tourism Forum 2015

Leicester Shire Promotions hosted the annual Leicester and Leicestershire Tourism Forum on 26th February 2015 at Stamford Court in Leicester.

The Forum provided city and county tourism businesses – including hotels, B&Bs, other accommodation providers, visitor attractions, restaurants, bars and museums - with updates on the latest developments and opportunities to help them grow their business in 2015.

A series of presentations focused on subjects including enhancing the experience for visitors to the reinterment of King Richard III in March 2015 and beyond, the launch of a new Quality Charter and a new Online Customer Satisfaction Survey that will enable visitors and guests to feed back on local tourism businesses.

The afternoon session concentrated on an industry consultation by the Leicester and Leicestershire Enterprise Partnership and district-based businesses were able to review and help to influence local blueprints for tourism priorities.
