Councillor John Clark, portfolio holder for Economic Development for South Somerset District Council said: “This event is a great way to kick start what will be an incredibly important season. An exciting selection of businesses have already signed up and there’s always a great atmosphere where likeminded businesses have the opportunity to get together in one place. We’re delighted that one of our key South Somerset attractions is hosting us and although the event will be slightly different this year, we still think it will be a valuable opportunity to network and exchange details about our fabulous destination”

The Leaflet Exchange is taking place during English Tourism Week (22nd to 31st May). English Tourism Week is designed to celebrate our diverse, exciting and vibrant sector, and showcases the quality, range and value of English tourism.

Making up 80% of the UK’s visitor economy, English tourism in 2019 generated over £100 billion a year and supported 2.6 million jobs and is a major employer of school leavers and young people, as well as an incubator for entrepreneurs and innovation. In South Somerset, tourism is one of the major employment opportunities and hugely important in helping to ensure we live in a vibrant and varied environment.

Thank you. You response is appreciated.
