Showcasing the North East

There is fantastic news for the North East as VisitBritain, Newcastle Airport and NewcastleGateshead Initiative have announced a partnership to promote the region to overseas visitors. The aim of the partnership is to encourage more visitors to come to the North East and explore our culture and heritage over the course of three years. The initiative will target visitors from Germany in its first year, with direct flights from Berlin to Newcastle making the North East an attractive destination. Northumberland Tourism are one of several organisations involved with the project, which will hopefully showcase the North East as a great destination for international tourists, improving the economy and the tourism industry in the area. Next year’s Great Exhibition of the North will also play a significant role in encouraging international tourists to visit the region, with exhibits, performances, culture and much more hopefully promoting the North East to a wider audience. We know that the North East is a wonderful place to live and visit- this partnership will make sure everyone else knows too!
