South Somerset Tourism hosts free Networking and Literature Exchange for local businesses
The popular tourism-focused Leaflet Exchange event gives Somerset businesses the opportunity to network with others and exchange promotional materials to spread awareness of their business across the district and beyond.
Join us from 10am until 12noon on Tuesday 22 March at the Westlands Entertainment Venue in Yeovil. We welcome all pubs, cafes, restaurants, attractions and accommodation providers from South Somerset and over the borders.
All businesses with an interest in attracting visitors are invited to attend the free morning event to pick up their leaflet stock for the coming season and meet representatives from the attractions.
Businesses from across Somerset will be exhibiting, including Fleet Air Arm Museum, Haynes International Motor Museum, Somerset Guild of Craftsman and Parrett Trail Bikes. The Somerset and Dorset National Garden Scheme will be attending with their popular Yellow Books plus representatives from market towns with local walking guides. Highways England will also be in attendance to answer all your questions surrounding the A303 Sparkford to Ilchester scheme roadworks.
Visit South Somerset will be sharing some exciting news and materials about the much improved River Parrett Trail, a must see and do for walkers and nature and wildlife enthusiasts.
Councillor John Clark, Portfolio Holder for Economic Development for South Somerset District Council said: “This event is a great way to kick start the season and celebrate the English Tourism Week. An exciting selection of businesses has already signed up and there’s always a great atmosphere where like-minded businesses have the opportunity to get together in one place. We’re delighted that one of our key South Somerset attractions is hosting us and will be a valuable opportunity to network and exchange details about our fabulous destination”
