Professionals from the European tourism industry enjoyed an evening in Longleat House recently as part of a fact-finding tour of England. The event, which was jointly organised with Bath Tourism and Visit England, attracted interest from as far afield as Spain, Italy, Belgium and Germany.
The group, representing European corporate and incentive travel buyers, were given a familiarisation visit around the Wiltshire attraction. The evening included a drinks reception in the Great Hall of Longleat House, a guided tour of the State Rooms, dinner in the Green Library and the opportunity to enjoy some close encounters with a variety of exotic animals.
In addition to representatives from many of the largest corporate buyers in Europe, including American Express, the event was also attended by the Head of Business Events for Visit England and staff from Bath Tourism.
