  • A new way to promote your business

If you’d like to win new business, there has never been a better time. With more than £800 million invested in Telford and Wrekin’s infrastructure in the last two years, this is the fastest growing town in the West Midlands.

And now Telford & Wrekin Council has launched a new initiative, the Visitor Economy Forum, to help promote businesses like yours by attracting more new and repeat visitors to the area. Joining the Forum brings worthwhile commercial benefits but membership is free.

The Visitor Economy Forum will help local businesses in the tourism, hospitality and retail sectors grow and succeed and undertake activity through the Discover Telford brand.

As a new and dynamic replacement for the Telford Tourism Partnership, the Forum empowers the Council and local businesses to work together under the Discover Telford campaign to promote Telford and the surrounding area as a vibrant visitor destination for domestic and
international visitors.
