Official Destination Management Organisation | Discover Shropshire & Telford -
Message to Tourism, Leisure, Hospitality and Retail Members
This is an increasingly difficult time for us all and in the tourism and hospitality sector we have faced new and unprecedented challenges.
As your Tourism Board covering the destination of Shropshire we want to be here to support you with the practical and real support that we know is vital at this time.
We are working with partners across the UK and locally from our councils and local enterprise partnerships to our national tourism organisations to collate all the information and links you need to access the support you need when you need it most. We are also lobbying with VisitBritian, the Tourism Alliance and other hospitality bodies to galvanize real business support in these unprecedented times.
Get access to the latest information and guidance on travel and tourism from our national tourism organisations VisitEngland and VisitBritian. We are in contact with the teams at VisitEngland and VisitBritian daily and will update on any major news, opportunities or assistance as it emerges.
Get FREE marketing and promotion of your business
If you have a business in the retail, hospitality and tourism sector able to diversify your business or continue running – tag us in on social media, share your stories with us via email and we will do our best to share this across our large network of free high reach promotional distribution and communication channels including the official tourism website for the area, all social media channels and digital platforms.

Connect with local tourism businesses
With over 600 tourism businesses in our membership across Shropshire, we can support tourism, retail and hospitality businesses to network to support their resilience and diversification. We can connect people and opportunities including facilitating e-introductions for businesses who wish to seek new partnerships, new supply chains and channels of distribution. For example small accommodation providers looking to network with B&B’s and hotels nearby to refer business that they are unable to accommodate and restaurants and cafes looking to collaborate on new distribution for delivery services.
