Brexit, the global economy and climate change are on the agenda for The Tourism Society's Annual Symposium 2019
Being held in Blackpool on September 24, the event will kick off with a keynote speech from the new head of the BBC, Adrian Mills, who will talk about Britain, the North, populism, youth, scepticism and implications for tourism.
This will be followed by three sessions on the themes of disruption and sustainability.

Tours include Blackpool Tower, Blackpool Beach and a behind-the-scenes preview of Blackpool's new conference centre.
