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. We will update the audience on recent visitor performance before making some bold predictions.

Evolving international relations will make 2018 a very interesting year; come and hear the news and views of top industry practitioners under the expert chairmanship of Christopher Rodrigues CBE.  Audience comments and questions are actively encouraged!
