Plenty of businesses shared and networked with each other at a special event held at the Chichester Festival Theatre last week.
Attractions from the district and surrounding areas joined together for the annual leaflet exchange event last Wednesday.
Visit Chichester, the official destination management organisation responsible for promoting tourism and supporting the visitor economy in the Chichester region, held the leaflet exchange, a show to highlight the range of attractions, events, shops and dining options available to residents and visitors around the region.
Arundel Lido, Paulton’s Park, Goodwoof, Tangmere Military Aviation Museum, The National Garden Scheme and Chichester Ship Canal were just some of the organisations who were present at the event.
Every year the leaflet exchange offers an ideal opportunity for exchanging promotional material and discovering what will be on offer for visitors to the area during the year ahead, as well as networking with colleagues from across the tourism industry, helping to join up the district’s offering to visitors.
This year the event expanded and was held over two floors of the brasserie, allowing exhibitors more space.
Helen Broom, marketing executive for Visit Chichester said: “We were delighted to welcome so many people to leaflet exchange once again, with attractions exhibiting from the Chichester area and beyond.
“It’s a great opportunity for businesses to chat in an informal atmosphere and share information.”
