We're pleased to announce that Malcolm Bell (Chief Exec of Visit Cornwall) has agreed to speak at this years conference. We had the pleasure of hearing Malcolm talk at a Tourism Society conference in Cardiff earlier in the year and it will be a pleasure to hear him speak again.
Over the last 12 months Malcolm has steered Visit Cornwall, the Tourist Board for Cornwall, as it established itself as Community Interest Company having been a service of Cornwall Council for 40 years.
With 100% loss in council funding Malcolm and his team had to make significant changes to their business model and worked with key partners from across the tourism industry to secure visit Cornwall's future and the vital services it provides for it's members and the destination as a whole.
Malcolm is a really dynamic and straight talking speaker who really understand the tourism industry.and we're delighted he will be attending the 2017 Mid Wales Tourism Conference!
