Making it Happen – Events and Tourism Marketing

Concert at the Dome picture "Buxton service industry needs to work together to become tourist talking point" Eddy Grant, Senior Lecturer in Events Management at the University of Derby, will tell the guests

Event date: Wednesday, 26 April 2017 at 6.00 PM

The re-opening of the Crescent Hotel heralds a new and exciting era for Buxton; vibrant and eye-catching events across the town could really help put the town on the tourist map and boost our local economy.

Eddy Grant, Senior Lecturer in Events Management at the University of Derby, was the Major Events Manager for Liverpool’s 2008 UK Capital of Culture programme, developing systems and delivering large-scale events including the famous giant robot spiders’ spectacle, a Paul McCartney concert and the Tall Ships Visit.

Join us for his public lecture from 6pm at the Devonshire Dome when he will propose that Buxton’s festival organisers, hotels, shops, local authorities and restaurants need to work together to create exciting events which will make England’s leading Spa Town a tourist talking point.

Venue: University of Derby Buxton Campus, Devonshire Road, Buxton SK17 6RY
