Here at Love Weymouth we are really pleased to hear the news that a new local tourism partnership is being launched and we look forward to working alongside them promoting the area …

The partnership is made up of many local organisations representing various aspects of the industry who wish to join forces to develop and improve Weymouth and Portland’s tourism offer.

Simon Newport, General Manager of First Wessex and the newly elected Chairman of the Weymouth & Portland Tourism Partnership said: “The main aim of the partnership is to bring tourism providers in Weymouth and Portland together to share ideas and communicate with each other.

“We want to encourage residents and visitors to make the most of the fabulous venues and deals in the local area without travelling further afield.

“If you feel you have an offer or opportunity to encourage customers to stay local, tell us about it and we’ll ensure that other service providers know and can inform their customers.”

The partnership looks to bring representatives from attractions, accommodation, food providers and transport together to discuss how to develop local tourism.

The partnership believes that there is an important need to provide a unified representation of the tourism industry that supports growth and encourages investment. This will allow opportunities to share experience and good practice between group members.
