As announced on 27 November, Government is undertaking formal negotiations for the proposed Tourism Sector Deal. Industry and Government must now work together to finalise the details of the proposed Sector Deal.

Attracting - and taking advantage of hosting - major events will form an important part of the proposal. I would urge those in the events sector to engage with Steve Ridgway, the Chair of the British Tourism Authority, and their trade associations as we take forward these discussions.
