What past delegates have said

Here are just a few quotes from past delegates:


"A really excellent conference. The format is well structured to get an overview of a number of relevant topics and up to date insights into tourism,  with plenty of helpful tips and links to follow up afterwards. A good opportunity for networking as well as catching up with friends across from across the industry."

Clare, Andrewshayes Holiday Park

"I left the conference feeling inspired and wanting to put a lot of what I had learnt into action. "

Elizabeth, Nethway Farm Holiday Cottages

"The West Country Tourism Conference is an essential opportunity for those working in this industry, both in terms of learning and networking. Robin and Nell's organisation of the event leading up to and during was slick, the coffee was delicious and the speakers were immensely inspiring. I am new to the role of Marketing Manager for family-run Stuart Line Cruises and came away feeling energised, motivated, better informed and truly inspired. It was a great venue at Westpoint and a bonus to be able to attend the Source Trade Show at the same time. Huge thanks to Robin and the team - when can we re-book for next year?" - Lauren, Stuart Line Cruises

"Another triumph of a conference Robin and Nell – thank you. As always, great networking, excellent tips, and lovely to meet some new faces. You asked if we had actioned anything from the event… the take away from Ally Northfield’s panel was to make our website as easy to use as booking.com, with as many photos. Amazing how long it takes to update our own website compared to our entry on booking.com, but we are on it and have already started. And from my brief chat with you (having missed Geoff Ramm yesterday), the staff’s ‘wall of brilliance’ is on its way!" - Sammie Coryton, Pentillie Castle

 "The Tourism Conference was great! It was a fantastic opportunity to network with a range of businesses and organisations working within the Tourism industry in the South West. The conference itself had a diverse range of speakers who provided insight into marketing trends, delivering CELEBRITY customer service and top tips on how you can improve your sites accessibility, environmental impact and employment opportunities. The speakers were informative and engaging and the group activities coordinated by customer service professional Geoff Ramm were really fun and memorable. Thank you to all the organisers, speakers and sponsors for a great day." - Elle Taylor, Information and Events Officer, East Devon District Council Countryside team

“Thanks for a brilliant conference with some great speakers. It really helped clarify some of our digital marketing strategies and we’re really glad our team attended. See you next year.” - The marketing team at Beverley Holidays

 "I enjoyed Wednesday enormously and thought Geoff was superb! Great value for money, inspiring, and the perfect length." - John Harvey, The Samphire Club

"The speakers you had were awesomely helpful and very interesting especially Geoff; we are already applying what he taught us."  - Chris Murray, Pennywell Farm

"Thank you for yesterday, I thought it was brilliant. Having been to several similar events over the last few weeks this was definitely the most useful and I came away with a list of things to do, people to speak to, and a few new customers - all in all excellent value for money!" - Samantha Short, Hello Kingsbridge

"Thank you so much for organising the Conference yesterday, it was one of the best Conferences that I have attended, packed with really valuable content covering such a wide range of topics. It was well worth the drive from Bristol and my mind is buzzing with all the valuable information given, it was an added bonus to spend the lunch hour looking at the ExpoWest Exhibition."Julie Camm, General Manager, Alveston House Hotel, Bristol 

“For a small business, taking a day out for a conference is difficult.  However, when the day is well organised, crammed with excellent speakers discussing pertinent topics it becomes well worth it.  The sessions were short & punchy, extremely well chaired and we left with much food for thought.  We look forward to the next one.”  - Charlie & Julia Hutchings, Larkbeare Grange
