Wales Tourism Week highlights the importance of the tourism industry to Wales in income and job generation and in supporting our cultural identity. Wales Tourism Week is held annually to raise the profile of the tourism industry and to highlight it's huge revenue generating value and the opportunities it provides for jobs and careers.
The main aim is to push tourism up the political agenda by working together across tourism sectors and boundaries. The Wales Tourism Alliance would therefore like to see as much engagement between the tourism industry and our politicians during the Week - 15th to the 21st May 2018 - although events either side are welcome too. Whatever your political views, we are at an historical juncture, it is important that we work together to showcase what we offer and how important the industry is to the economy of local communities in the light of the challenges to be faced from the UK leaving the EU.
This week long ‘celebration’ aims to push the fact that our industry is one of Wales’s most resilient employers, job creators and a basic source of economic growth which must not be taken for granted. If you have an event that you would like to publish, then please register with the link below. Your event can be as simple as inviting your local AM or MP out to your business or local area for a meet and greet, with a cup of tea...but please let us know, cameras and press releases in hand!
