Register for Access for All event
As part of English Tourism Week 2015, VisitEngland will be holding a conference on achieving access for all in tourism venues. Unlocking the Purple Pound will be held in partnership with award-winning Sandcastle Waterpark in Blackpool on Wednesday 18th March.
This free event will help business owners and managers improve their facilities and services for disabled people and those with other accessibility needs – a market now worth £12.4bn to England’s tourism industry.
With an ageing population, older groups are becoming more and more important for domestic tourism – trips taken by the 55+ age group have increased by a massive 31% since 2006. This trend will further strengthen demand for accommodation and attractions that provide good accessibility.
Sponsored by Aveso, the programme is packed full of practical tips and expert insights, including an Access Statement workshop, top tips for accessible marketing and tailored sessions for attraction and accommodation businesses.
The conference is primarily aimed at owners and managers of English tourism businesses (accommodation, attractions, activity providers etc.) and priority will be given to these delegates.
