Gavin Marshall chief executive of Plymouth Pavilions, Destination Plymouth and Conference Plymouth board director, and Amanda Lumley, chief executive of Destination Plymouth attended the UKinbound Summer Ball on 22 June to accept the opportunity to host the UKinbound Annual Convention in February 2017.
The evening event was attended by sector organisations including VisitBritain and VisitEngland and was hosted by Mark McVay, UKinbound chairman, and Deirdre Wells, chief executive.
“With over 300 representatives of the travel trade present, the Ball provided our partners from Plymouth with an excellent opportunity to meet key members of this vibrant industry which contributes over £22bn to the economy each year.
“This was a fantastic opportunity to showcase Plymouth as Britain’s Ocean City to the organisations and people who promote the UK internationally. We are very proud to be able to host this event next year and very excited about the chance to really demonstrate the great offering that we have here in Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall,” said Marshall.
