Attracting visitors to Uttlesford will be the theme discussed at the forthcoming Tourism Summit hosted by Uttlesford District Council (UDC) on Tuesday, January 28 at Parklands, Quendon Hall, Quendon.

Tourism sector businesses operating within the district are welcome to attend this interactive summit which will see presentations from Visit Essex and the economic development team at UDC.

Cllr Howard Rolfe, Cabinet Member for Communities and Partnerships at UDC said: “As part of our economic development strategy for the district, this Tourism Summit is the next business event which we hope will be as popular and well attended as the recently held business breakfast.

“We want to make Uttlesford a tourist destination and we need the input and engagement from the businesses to achieve this, so I do urge them to attend.”

Simon Jackson, Economic Development Officer at UDC said: “We want to create a plan of action with the aim of attracting more visitors to the towns, villages, heritage attractions, events and leisure facilities that are on offer in our district.”

“We want to work together with the tourism and leisure businesses to help put Uttlesford on the tourist map and we want to encourage as many businesses to attend the event on the 28th.”
