Penrose to speak at tourism convention




John Penrose, the UK Minister for Tourism and Heritage, will be the headline speaker at this year’s annual UKinbound convention.

Taking place in Belfast on 1-2 February, Penrose will share the Government’s progress on its tourism strategy and will take part in a lively discussion on where tourism fits in the Government’s agenda.

Ukinbound chief executive Mary Rance said: "The Olympics will undoubtedly thrust Britain to the centre of the global stage so to hear what the government is doing to harness this potential and make Britain’s tourist industry flourish is vital."

Penrose will join keynote speaker Scott Field, head of online travel at Google, Anthony Hilton, financial editor for the London Evening Standard, independent travel writer, Alison Rice and Brian Wisdom.

The BBC’s Bill Turnbull will moderate the panel debate when industry leaders will discuss predictions for inbound tourism in 2012 and beyond.

More than 180 delegates are expected to attend the convention.
