7th National Conference. To be held at Westminster Studio, London SW1
The culture, tourism and sport sector is facing evermore challenging times as budgets are cut, services are redesigned and decentralisation is realised. In this time of austerity it is more important than ever to explore best practice in delivering services, partnership working and localism to ensure that benefits are realised.
This conference will bring together senior officers and elected members with local partners and national development agencies explore best practice in developing and delivering services within the culture, tourism and sport sector.
