Sport and culture are two of the three pillars identified as Wales’ ‘core offer’ in the Welsh Government’s tourism strategy. As a result, the Welsh Government is prioritising development and marketing resources to boost these areas as key attractions for visitors.
This session will examine sport and culture in Wales further, assessing how they can be used to promote Wales and strengthen the Welsh brand abroad. Members will also be exploring some of the broader challenges and opportunities facing the sector in the wake of the covid-19 pandemic.
