@tourismsociety       #TSocProspects

Join us for our annual Prospects event as we look ahead over the coming year and consider what trading conditions will be like, what emerging trends the tourism sector needs to embrace (or help start), and other challenges and opportunities that businesses will be facing. VisitBritain will update the audience on recent visitor performance before making some bold predictions, and then panellists will introduce a key topic for discussion before the chairman gets the general discussion going. Audience comments and questions are encouraged. Evolving international relations will make 2017 a very interesting year; get involved in the discussion to hear the industry's view.

  • Chair: Noel Josephides FTS - Chairman, ABTA
