Responsible Tourism Conference

Responsible Tourism Conference







Chrissie was invited to speak at the International Responsible Tourism conference which was held yesterday at the Monastery in Manchester. My topic was communication between Destination Managers and Town Planners. I was encouraging Destination Managers to talk more to planners and gave them four reasons why they should.

  • Planners plan strategically for the long-term
  • Planning applications are a opportunity to negotiate gains for both visitors and residents
  • Planners have skills in Stakeholder Engagement
  • Local Planning authorities have legal powers to make things happen

It was a thought-provoking conference and I developed some good connections for the future.
