Following the success of the ‘Historical Gems’ feature area last year supported by the publishing company, it will be sponsoring a dedicated heritage area for 2015. To be called ‘Britain’s Heritage’, the area highlights the importance heritage tourism plays in the British economy, accounting for over £26 billion.
‘Britain’s Heritage’ gives historical houses, gardens and attractions the opportunity to exhibit at the leading event for the UK and Ireland’s domestic tourism and venues industry.
Additionally, Hudson’s Media will be sponsoring a new feature area to the show – Hotel Lobby – dedicated to the UK and Ireland’s growing and resilient independent hotel sector.
Commenting on their continued involvement at the show, Sarah Greenwood, Publisher at Hudson’s Media said: “We are delighted to be able to sponsor a dedicated heritage and hotels area at Best of Britain & Ireland 2015. This will allow many of the independent heritage attractions and our Signpost hoteliers to meet tour operators face-to-face at this important tourism event for the first time. The variety of independent attractions and hotels are what make Britain outstanding as a destination and so many regions beyond London and Edinburgh are just waiting to be discovered.”
Best of Britain & Ireland’s Event Director Simon Greenbury said: “One of the key objectives of Best of Britain & Ireland is to be at the forefront of industry trends and to represent tourism areas that are seeing continued growth. These two feature areas do exactly that. We are confident that they will prove a popular draw for visitors looking for new experiences to offer their clients.”
