Visitor Economy workshops & events

A key priority of Suffolk Growth’s visitor economy programme is to build collaboration and connectivity across the range of contributors in sector. We will develop with partners regular workshops and networking events to support this goal.

Our workshops are available to key stakeholders and practitioners working in the visitor economy, across public, private and community sectors. Our aim is to bring together individuals from the broad range of areas that contribute to our sector from travel, hospitality, retail and leisure, to culture, heritage and countryside to support sharing best practice, innovation, and development.

 

We also want to connect our visitor economy with the key strategic development areas that will support and enable sustainable growth of the sector, including areas of skills, transport, planning, environment and economic development.
