Andy Taylor is a familiar face to many islanders who he welcomes into his Cafe Delice base in Market Square which makes his well placed to talk to scores of islanders about what they would like to see as the general tourism activities offer here. He recently launched TourGuernsey in his distinctive open top Landrover and Andy is hugely enthusiastic about encouraging more islanders to support and investigate joining the visitor economy.
The Chamber Attractions and Outdoor Pursuits Industry Group is attracting a broad cross section of individuals and businesses with a view to ensuring that this aspect of a visit to the island is as strong as possible.
VisitUK has recently highlighted in its 2019 strategy document the growing opportunities around tourism which is expected to offer substantial opportunities in job development and economic growth for England. Locally, the group believe that a positive, cohesive approach to marketing the island and its attractions will reap rewards.
