Visit East Lincolnshire and the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce have linked-up in a bid to further promote tourism to the area.

Business leaders hope the new partnership between Visit East Lincolnshire and the Lincolnshire Chamber will deliver business and marketing support to tourism businesses involved in East Lindsey’s visitor economy.

Talking about the role of the Lincolnshire Chamber, in supporting Visit East Lincolnshire, Chris Baron, Chair of Visit East Lincolnshire, said: “One of our primary roles is to market East Lincolnshire as a quality visitor destination for holidays, short breaks and day visits.

“But this will only take us so far. Visit East Lincolnshire also wants to help businesses offer the best possible visitor experience, delivered by skilled and trained workers who are passionate about excellent customer service”.

Simon Beardsley, chief executive of Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “As a Chamber, we excel in business support for organisations of all shapes and sizes. And we’re looking forward to bringing more benefits and opportunities to Visit East Lincolnshire members”.

Craig Leyland, portfolio holder for Economic Regeneration at East Lindsey District Council, added: “We are delighted that Visit East Lincolnshire is going from strength to strength and that the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce will be providing a vital support role.

“It is so important that we work together in promoting and supporting tourism in East Lindsey, which generates nearly half a billion pounds annually and supports over 7,000 in employment”.
