Visit Hull and East Yorkshire host a free to attend webinar focussing on the challenges and opportunities facing the tourism sector as Hull and East Yorkshire’s visitor economy embarks on reopening and recovery after the most challenging of years.
Presented by Blair Jacobs, travel expert Simon Calder will be discussing the future of tourism and providing invaluable insight into what the future holds for destinations such as Hull and East Yorkshire.
