Lancashire and Blackpool is the only area of the UK outside London showcasing its conference facilities at a major national exhibition later this month.
Tourism chiefs will showcase the area’s unique offering to the ‘not for profit’ sector at the Charities and Associations Exhibition (CHASE).
The move is part of a major drive by Lancashire and Blackpool Tourist Board in partnership with visitBlackpool to highlight the area’s variety and quality of conference and meeting facilities and the packages it can offer organisations of all types and sizes.
The ‘not for profit’ sector represents a significant part of the UK’s conference industry and Lancashire & Blackpool conference organisers believe CHASE, which attracts organisations from across the country, is the ideal place to promote its message.
Tony Openshaw, Director of Marketing at LBTB, said: “We are delighted to be the only area outside London exhibiting at CHASE.
“We believe the strong and varied conference and meeting packages offered throughout the Lancashire and Blackpool region will be of great interest to charities and associations looking for something extra special, from the exciting and modern approach of Blackpool, the UK’s number one beach resort, to the diversity of Lancashire, that can offer city centre chic as well as rural splendour.
“Our message to the ‘not for profit’ sector is simple: whatever style or size of conference or meeting you are looking to organise, we have the ideal venue and the package to suit.
“Our appearance at CHASE is part of our co-ordinated and high-profile campaign to highlight Lancashire and Blackpool to as wide an audience of businesses, organisations and societies as possible.”
The 18th annual CHASE Exhibition will take place on February 23 and 24 at the Business Design Centre in north London.
CHASE is the premier business to business exhibition for the ‘not for profit’ sector with the industry’s leading figures and decision makers expected to attend.
