Digital Spring Expo 2021

Taking place online between 16-18 March 2021, British Marine is delighted to announce the first speakers and sessions for the British Marine Digital Spring Expo.

Fitting into Expo’s second day theme of ‘Participation and tourism’, author of the British Marine: Futures report, Liz Rushall will be accompanied by Jon White of TYHA and Jason Ludlow to lead a session on ‘Leveraging changing consumer and market trends’. This session will cover watersports participation and consumer trends since 2002 and identify new business opportunities. They will also be launching a new actionable ‘Futures’ tool, to assist members in adapting to change and maximising opportunities. 

Kurt Janson from the Tourism Alliance, Martin Latimer and Simon Limb from the Scottish Giant Strides project and James Stuart from One Planet Consulting will host a session dedicated to ‘The impact of COVID-19 on marine tourism’. They will discuss how the pandemic is affecting marine tourism and what the future holds, followed by a Q&A opportunity.

Also confirmed are four separate networking sessions over the three days at Expo. These will allow plenty of opportunities to expand contacts, network, collaborate and support each other. With cameras on and friendly face-to-face chat, these sessions include smaller breakout rooms to facilitate meeting new people and exchanging contacts, as well as catching up with familiar acquaintances in the industry.
