North East England to display wares to UK buyers

The North East England tourism industry will tour the UK in a bid to attract new visitors to the region. Tourism businesses across Northumberland, Tyne & Wear, County Durham and Tees Valley will join forces for a series of high profile, business-generating group travel workshops in Oxfordshire, Liverpool and Ripon in October and November. It will provide planners with the opportunity to meet the region’s top hotels, venues, attractions and destinations and allow them to come face to face with the region’s tourism businesses. The events are arranged in partnership with attractions and group destinations across the UK. This year they will take place at Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden in North Ripon on Friday 20th October and at the Tate Liverpool in Albert Dock, Liverpool on Friday 17th November. The final North East England Roadshow will be at the internationally renowned Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire on Thursday 30th November. The workshops have been organised under the leadership of Regional Development Agency One NorthEast and coordinated by Corbridge-based tourism specialists Steve Reed Tourism Ltd. Director of regeneration and tourism for One NorthEast John Holmes said: "The North East Group Travel roadshows have developed into a significant and annual set piece for the region’s tourism industry and are recognised as being both an efficient and a cost effective way to generate new business, but they also represent a great opportunity for the region’s hotels, attractions and destinations to work closely together."
