We are a membership organisation run by tourism businesses for tourism businesses.
We are independent of local authorities and government funding, and therefore can act in the legitimate interest of the tourism businesses we represent.
All our member businesses are local businesses including those working in accommodation, hospitality, attractions, adventure activities, retail, business tourism, and the promotion of active lifestyles. All of our financial support comes from our members.
