Lake District to host major tourism conference

LEADING tourism businesses, hoteliers and tour operators will be gathering in the Lake District for a major conference this April.

Speakers already confirmed are BBC travel expert Simon Calder, Trip Advisor’s head of destinations for EMEA Justin Reid, and Jennifer Cormack, sales and marketing director at Windermere Lake Cruises.

“We’re extremely proud to be a Lake District business, it’s a hugely exciting time for the area and this event will provide a global platform to showcase the heritage and development,” said Cormack (pictured).

“We’ll be setting sail with attendees to give those less familiar with the area a glimpse at what attracts visitors in the millions year after year.”

The one-day conference on April 19 will be held at the Low Wood Bay Hotel in Windermere, which has recently undergone a £19m restoration.
