Residents across Europe have started to protest about the number of tourists coming to their cities and making normal life impossible for locals.

Liverpool is not yet at that level of visitor saturation but we want to now explore how we can initiate a relationship with tourist professionals in the city so that we can develop and deliver a different strategy. One which means we can both benefit from the employment the visitor economy brings as well as add value to each visitor to the city who wants to experience Liverpool first hand. Attend Engage Liverpool’s three upcoming seminars to discover more and help shape the future of Liverpool’s visitor economy.
