Blackpool to host 2019 Tourism Society Symposium

The event will take place in the autumn of 2019 at Blackpool's new Winter Gardens Conference Centre opening in summer next year.

Blackpool is ideally placed to host the Tourism Symposium at its new Winter Gardens Conference Centre. The Centre will have two floors of adaptable space to facilitate the main plenary session, exhibition and break out areas.

"I am delighted that Blackpool has kindly offered to host the 2019 Tourism Symposium.," said The Tourism Society’s newly elected chairman, Kevin Kaley. "There is no doubt that the resort will continue to grow in popularity following its extensive regeneration programme over the past five years. Blackpool is set to welcome several new branded hotels during the next two years and represents an outstanding example of how a destination’s tourism economy can be transformed."

"The Tourism Society’s Symposium will provide an excellent opportunity for us to not only showcase the superb facilities on offer at the new Winter Gardens Conference Centre but also the new accommodation offer and direct transport links," added councillor Gillian Campbell, deputy leader of Blackpool Council.
