Calderdale Tourism Conference
Last week four of the Holdsworth House team attended the Calderdale Tourism Conference at the Halifax Minster. As well as seeing this amazing building at first hand, the conference was to explore how local businesses can help increase spend within the area and entice visitors from inside Calderdale and beyond the Pennine borders to visit more of the local attractions. Gary Verity, Chief Executive of tourism agency Welcome to Yorkshire, attended and explained his plan to get Yorkshire noticed on the world stage. Plus there were a number of workshops to discuss what makes Halifax and Calderdale unique and how together we can all draw on this unique landscape to generate hard cash. There are certainly enough unique places and landscapes that make the area attractive, so come on let's all shout it from the roof tops - Halifax brilliant!!
