BUSINESSES across the district were able to share and network with each other at a special event held on Wednesday.
More than 200 people, including group travel organisers and coach operators, attended the Visit Chichester Leaflet Exchange and Leisure Show at Chichester Festival Theatre.
Representatives of over 50 visitor attractions, accommodation providers, shops, restaurants, pubs, events and leisure activity operators were present to chat with each other and talk to members of the public attending.
The forum highlighted the exciting developments happening across the Chichester region during 2019 to stimulate ideas for people to plan their leisure time in the months ahead.
“This was the most successful event of its kind that Visit Chichester has ever organised and we will definitely be repeating the exercise in 2020,” said Louise Adlam, destination marketing executive at Visit Chichester.
“We were particularly pleased with the response from the public who we had opened the show to for the first time this year. Many of those attending were gathering information for friends and relatives intending to come to the region which serves as a reminder of the considerable economic benefits that tourism brings through this channel.”
Visit Chichester is the official destination management organisation responsible for promoting tourism and supporting the visitor economy in the Chichester region.
