The Department of National Heritage.

Introduction to the British Chapter by Lord Inglewood,
Former Under Secretary of State at The Department of National Heritage,
the Minister responsible for British Tourism.

Anyone visiting Britain will not be surprised to learn that it is ones of the world's leading tourist destinations. We offer a unique mix of heritage, arts, museums and galleries, sporting events and beautiful countryside and scenery. Britain can offer charming rustic villages or modern vibrant cosmopolitan cities.

We are acutely aware that one of the most important sector of our tourism industry is the business, conference and incentive travel market. Our tourism industry is well placed to meet the needs of this specialist market.

We value the important economic contribution of business visitors and are well aware that many business visitors may return as leisure visitors or indeed travel with their partners. It is no wonder that, in what is already a fiercely competitive sector, an ever increasing number of countries are promoting themselves as destinations for meetings, conferences and incentive travel, all trying to persuade you that their destination is best. But I know that, in Britain, we have the creativity, versatility, expertise and variety of attractions to compete successfully in the world market. The industry is well aware of the need to remain competitive and this reflected in the high quality service that is available from our hotels and conference venues.

What ever your clients are looking for, be it magnificent locations or prestigious venues, and whether you are looking for an incentive destination or a venue for a meeting or event in Britain you will be spoilt for choice.

I hope that you choose Britain as your ideal destination.

Lord Inglewood.
