Date announced for Tourism Symposium 2015

‘Connecting to the Future’

Following the success of Liverpool 2014, the Tourism Society has announced that the Tourism Symposium 2015 will take place on Monday 1st and Tuesday 2nd June 2015.

The event will be held in Kent, organised in partnership with the award winning Destination Management Organisation, Visit Kent. Ashford International Hotel will host the conference sessions and the two-day event will include a programme of study tours to some of the county’s key tourism assets.

The 2015 Symposium Patrons include VisitBritain, UKinbound, The Tourism Management Institute, Tourism Consultants Network and the Tourism Society.

The Tourism Symposium 2015 will bring together delegates from across not just the tourism industry but also from further afield and overseas who recognise the importance of collaboration and understanding of each other’s sectors. Attendees will focus on the theme of ‘Connecting to the Future’ through infrastructure - not just of trains, planes, boats and automobiles but also the soft and digital infrastructures of technology, partnerships and the networks that support growth e.g. Governments and DMOs.

The Symposium promises to be one of 2015’s most thought-provoking events, attracting the widest selection of delegates including senior tourism professionals and thought leaders, travel trade and media representatives. A full line up of the speakers will be announced within the next month but will include some of the leading experts from the world of tourism, arts, heritage and transport.
