A tourism conference designed to help new and existing visitor businesses in Pendle to grow was held in Nelson on Tuesday.
The event saw the launch of the new Pendle Visitors’ Guide, talks by guest speakers and workshops on digital marketing and social media.
The guide is designed to boost tourism in the area and can be found online at www.visitpendle.com
Coun. Paul White, who leads Pendle on tourism, said: “We’re proud to be officially launching the new guide at our conference for Pendle’s visitor businesses.
“The new guide shows that Pendle has some of the best attractions on offer in the UK and beyond.
“These include the UK’s first urban aerial assault course – the new Urban Altitude in Colne.
“We’re also part of the UK’s cycling capital with a new cycle track for all opening soon that’s named after our Olympic medallist Steven Burke.
“And Pendle is linking in to the Tour de France in neighbouring Yorkshire.”
The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival is also featured in the new guide.
Now in its 25th year, the August Bank Holiday has just won Best Festival in the European Blues Awards.
The guide also features the award winning Pendle Witches Trail and the new Pendle Sculpture Trail, as well as the popular international Walking Festival which is held each year.
