The Visit County Durham autumn conference was held yesterday to reflect on the success of 2018 and to unveil what is set to be an incredible year of opportunity for the county in 2019.

Held at Redworth Hall Hotel, over 110 partners and delegates from across the county attended the conference to hear the latest updates from Visit County Durham, network with industry peers, and discover the opportunities available.


The event commenced with a welcome from VCD Chairman Ivor Stolliday, followed by an introduction to the Year of Culture – Durham 2019 from Managing Director at Visit County Durham, Michelle Gorman.


Katy Clarke from Visits Unlimited gave a talk on creating accessibility for all and Sophie Hardy from Visit County Durham concluded with a summary of VisitEngland’s key themes for 2019, with a focus on their #MyMicrogap campaign.


The afternoon saw delegates attend interactive workshops to look in more detail at how accessibility, microgapping and next year’s programme of festivals, events and developments represent opportunities for their businesses.
