Inclusive Tourism Conference UK: Tourism for All and Open Britain

A free conference has been organised for the industry to give insight on how to gain new business from people with disabilities - a market worth £2bn a year in domestic travel alone.

Research by VisitEngland revealed that the demand for travel and leisure products from disabled people is growing, and the conference - organised by charity Tourism for All and Open Britain, a website for all disability travel information in the UK - aims to offer tips on how to tap into the market and to maximise opportunities, particularly in the build up to the Olympic and Paralymic Games next year.

Speakers include Dame Tanni Grey-Thompson, Loyd Grossman and Magnus Berglund of Scandic Hotels and the event will be chaired by Mark Lewis, editor of Caterer and Hotelkeeper.

The conference takes place on 24 January at The BT Centre in
LondonTo register your interest, email info@tourismforall.org.uk.
