The Tourism Management Institute (TMI) has selected Leicester as the host city for its next Hot Topic conference entitled ‘Creating a Bookable Destination’ on 24 May 2016. This conference is one of the highest profile events in the tourism industry calendar and is expected to attract 120 TMI members who promote and develop destinations across the UK, Europe and worldwide.
Leicester Shire Promotions has worked with TMI conference organisers to attract this conference to Leicester. The event will take place at Curve with a pre-conference welcome taking place at Hotel Maiyango the evening before. There will also be opportunity for TMI members – including destination management organisations, local government, national tourist organisations, visitor attractions, consultancies and the higher education sector – to discover more about the fascinating 2,000 year history of Leicester ahead of the conference.
Robin Barker, President of TMI commented: “We’re delighted that TMI is coming back to Leicester, one of only an elite group of destinations to be hosting a TMI event on more than one occasion. Great things have been happening in the city and we’re always keen to hear about these and ideas that we can share amongst members across the country. The combination of location, venue, accommodation, commitment to service and added value mean that I’m convinced that we’ll have an outstanding event.”
