Tourism Conference and Business Networking Event
‘Suffolk Inside Out’ celebrates the wealth of business opportunities in Suffolk, with a focus on the county’s thriving tourism industry and how trends like ‘staycations’ have contributed to local success stories.
The growing tourism economy within Suffolk along with the growth in ‘staycation’ holidays nationally, provide small to medium enterprises in the county leading to many business opportunities. These businesses include accommodation providers, event venues, leisure and hospitality businesses, cultural arts and heritage organisations alongside many agricultural businesses that have diversified to provide visitor attractions and food tourism. The challenge to support and sustain these industries, in a difficult economic environment, provides the focus for ‘Suffolk Inside Out’, an event on Friday 11 March.
