In the midst of one of the most challenging economic environments the country has experienced, the tourism sector has been described by the Prime Minister as a local industry with huge economic opportunity. But can the sector seize this opportunity? This year’s International Centre for Responsible Tourism (ICRT) Annual Conference on local economic development and tourism reviewed these prospects. Former HTF Chair, Brian Human, delivered an inspiring presentation on how heritage, tourism and planning can work together. View all the conference presentations. As a direct result of this conference, HTF has been invited to host an event around Tourism, Localism and LEPs on 14 April. More as details become available.
