Destination Milton Keynes and Experience Bedfordshire have unveiled a new exhibition, Making a Business of Tourism, to be hosted, 27 March, at Millbrook Venues’ Concept 1 building.
Making a Business of Tourism is supported by the South East Midlands Local Enterprise Partnership (SEMLEP).
Organisers hope to appeal to suppliers and buyers from local tourist attractions, hotels, restaurants, suppliers and independent businesses.
Milton Keynes College’s new creative studio, The Design House student-led facility, has designed the show logo and brand identity for the event.
Viviane Vayssieres, CEO of Experience Bedfordshire said: “Following the success of a similar exhibition held in 2013, we have identified a huge demand for this type of event in the Bedfordshire area. Working with partner organisation Destination MK will enable us to take the event to the next level and offer exhibitors and visitors from both counties the opportunity to network and share their knowledge, experience and best practice.”
Steven Gordon-Wilson, CEO of Destination MK, added: “We are delighted to become a part of the Making a Business of Tourism event and look forward to hosting a successful exhibition that is of great benefit to local and regional businesses.
“Involving The Design House has also been a successful and rewarding experience, enabling the students to take part in designing the identity of a brand that we hope will be established for many years, and many successful events to come.”
