And we will hear the progress so far of Chesterfield Borough Council’s new visitor economy strategy and Champions will be encouraged to feed in their views via a consultation.

Lindsay Rae, Deputy Director and Head of Industry Engagement at Marketing Peak District will provide an overview of the Chesterfield and Derbyshire visitor economy, explaining how the sector has been supported over recent months and the plans for increasing staying visitors into the recovery period and beyond.
