Community Tourism Conference

23 - 24 April 2013

This recently completed event successfully showcased the VRP Community Tourism Ambassador project and its strengths and successes and provided opportunities for networking and sharing best practice between similar ventures and projects from the rest of the UK and Europe.

The Tourism Ambassadors enthusiastically shared their experiences and demonstrated their roles, activities and aspirations in developing tourism within their communities.

The Event took place at Margam Park, Margam on the 23rd and 24th April and featured a varied programme of plenary sessions, exhibition, case studies and site visits. In addition there was an opportunity to attend a Welsh cultural workshop being held in Margam Castle and also an evening dinner in the Orangery at Margam where guests sampled the very best of what the Valleys has to offer.
