A project team of final year students at University Campus Suffolk (UCS) has been selected to create and host a major conference in Ipswich during National Tourism Week (March 15 - 22).

Suffolk Unlocked, on March 20, is a partnership between the tourism and events degree students, Visit Suffolk and Trinity Park. The UCS student team of Gemma Gooch, Emily Roe, Jess Benneworth, Kirsty Downes, Matt Scott and Ben Buck have undertaken all the roles needed to organise a conference of up to 150 delegates, from budgeting and accounts, marketing and sponsorship, communications, risk management and IT.

The aim is to bring together tourism businesses from across the county to identify ways to unlock the county’s full tourism potential.

James Beresford, chief executive of Visit England, will be the keynote speaker offering his insight from a national perspective. Other speakers include Professor Ian Baxter, head of UCS business school, and Professor John Lennon, tourism expert and visiting fellow from Glasgow University.

Tickets for the event are £35, available from www.ucs.ac.uk/suffolkunlocked
