Putting the Moorlands on the tourism map

The Staffordshire Moorlands is an ever popular and attractive destination for both visitors and holiday makers - and a networking event next week aims to help businesses and service providers make the most of the opportunities this popularity offers.

Staffordshire Moorlands District Council and Destination Staffordshire have teamed up to deliver a tourism swap shop and roadshow on Thursday 10 March at the Council's offices on Stockwell Street in Leek and the Tourist Information Centre in the Nicholson Museum and Art Gallery next door.

Keynote speakers from Enjoy Staffordshire will be attending and presenting on the day along with the opportunity for visitors to swap promotional literature with other regional venues and take part in a digital marketing and social media workshop.

Councillor Brian Johnson, cabinet member with responsibility for tourism, said: "The Moorlands attracts visitors from all over the UK and the world. This event is aimed at helping businesses involved in tourism to keep up-to-date with the latest news and share their successes and information on the services they can offer, with others in the industry.

"It's an excellent opportunity to meet with and learn from others and I'd strongly recommend that local businesses take part in what promises to be an informative and worthwhile event."
