The North East Wales tourism partnership has joined together to bring guests two exciting, online sessions.

Ian Lebbon, chair of Denbighshire Destination Management Partnership, said: “The forums are a great way to hear from local businesses and find out about the latest tourism developments. It’s not only for tourism businesses, it’s a good opportunity for students and anyone with an interest in tourism to hear from industry experts.”
