Exmoor Society Spring conference – ‘Visit Exmoor’
Friday 24 April
In association with Exmoor National Park Authority
National Parks were set up just after the second world war, not only to conserve and enhance special landscapes but also to promote people’s enjoyment of them.
How sustainable is tourism in these fragile landscapes and can protection and prosperity go hand-in-hand? Can Exmoor, one of the smallest national parks, attract more people with so much visitor choice in the South West? Could Visit England do more to encourage rural tourism? What do the visiting public desire from Exmoor? These are some of the questions that will be explored and debated at the Conference.
The Exmoor Society’s 11th Annual Spring Conference aims to raise important issues and influence the debate on how to manage this complex landscape. We are delighted that a range of speakers will be dealing with the questions raised, with plenty of opportunity for delegates to open up the debate. Speakers will represent Visit England, Exmoor National Park Authority, Exmoor Tourism, Visit Cornwall and include experts from Bournemouth University and Viper Marketing.
Places are limited and cost £15 per person including lunch, bookable direct with the Exmoor Society no later than 17 April 2015. Cheques payable, please, to “The Exmoor Society”.
