Are you a West Sussex visitor-facing business? Join us for a unique opportunity to develop your tourism business in 2024. Run in conjunction with English Tourism Week, this event is aimed at visitor economy businesses.


Learn about future plans for Sussex tourism. Get the latest consumer insights and hands-on advice. Join the conversations as industry experts and business leaders discuss their vision for a tourism landscape that is sustainable, has international acclaim, an inclusive feel, and celebrates and protects our green and blue spaces for future generations. Meet your local destination marketing organisations as well as a range of West Sussex business support teams to find out more about the opportunities they provide. 


Add your questions to our panel discussions and take part in practical workshops on a range of topics including AI impact, wine and screen tourism and nature-based tourism. As always there will be plenty of time for networking over lunch.


West Sussex is an outstanding tourism destination with plenty of scope for green growth and development. We have something to appeal to all visitors: nature-lovers, culture-vultures, and outdoor adventurers. From coast to countryside, gardens to gourmet, watersports to walking, cycling, arts and history, we have so much to offer and less than 2 hours from London by low carbon transport. By working in partnership and collaboration we can help attract longer staying visitors looking to enjoy more sustainable holidays and short breaks.
