Thematic years approach
In 2015, we announced a 3-year approach to promoting Wales based on a series of annual themes.
- Adventure in 2016
- Legends in 2017
- the Sea in 2018.
- a long-term ambition to grow a stronger and more defined brand for tourism in Wales
- the opportunity to focus investment and innovation in tourism
- the need to drive an increase in visitor volume and value to Wales each year.
Our aim by 2018, is that Wales becomes well-known for being an outstanding adventure, culture, heritage and outdoors destination; and that these messages link-up to create a much more defined and compelling destination proposition for Wales.
Our goal is drive more than £320million of additional consumer spend in Wales from the domestic market and more than £7m of travel trade business to Wales from our top 100 operators.
