Tourism Week 2021

Following on from successful Tourism Summits in previous years, Visit Cornwall held their first ever Tourism Week in March 2021 with a variety of guest speakers from across the industry, with support from their partner The Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Growth Hub.

Malcolm Bell, CEO of Visit Cornwall said.  "The last twelve months has been such a challenging year for everyone, especially tourism and hospitality businesses in Cornwall. Now that we know the roadmap for coming out of Lockdown 3, Visit Cornwall‘s week of webinars will enable businesses to review the challenges and opportunities for 2021, and equally important the future trends over the next decade"
