A new ‘flip-book’ online guide is being launched this month by Hull & East Yorkshire Conferences to profile the range of venues and services available in Hull, the UK’s City of Culture 2017, and across East Yorkshire.
The area’s official conference bureau has chosen a digital format which includes a mix of interactive video, scrolling image galleries and text.
The guide includes facts and figures about venues, local suppliers, and the free services that the bureau can offer. It also features more information about things to do while in Hull & East Yorkshire.
“The launch of the new conference guide comes at the beginning of a busy year for Hull & East Yorkshire Conferences; the team are working on a range of initiatives with both public and private sector partners to raise the profile of the area as a key conference destination on both the national and international stage,” said Hull & East Yorkshire Conferences’ Business Tourism Sales Officer, Ellie Garmston.
The bureau also says it is particularly keen to work with culture related conferences and with organisers who are keen to have the UK City of Culture 2017 as the backdrop for their event.
Social activities recommended by the guide for delegates in the area range from visiting cultural quarters, nature reserves and microbreweries, to top events such as the Freedom Festival and the annual Walking and Outdoors Festival.
The guide also includes video interviews from local event organisers who act as ambassadors for the region.
The visitor spend generated by business trips is worth an estimated £21.4m per year to the area, according to the Great Britain Tourism Survey.
