  “I am delighted to be attending Destination Britain North America in San Francisco on behalf of Mountain Goat Tours for the second year running. This event gives us a fantastic opportunity to meet with buyers from across North America and showcase Mountain Goat Tours and Northern England, strengthening and developing business relationships with important buyers and agents. This market is extremely important for us and we endeavour to work towards business levels pre pandemic for the upcoming year.” Asia Connor

The trade event brings together a huge amount of businesses from all over the UK, hotels, retailers, visitor attractions, experiences etc to showcase the best of Britain, to promote and to inspire trade from the overseas markets. The US is one of the biggest inbound markets for the UK, events such as this offers the opportunity to build new relations with suppliers who, in turn, bring thousands of visitors to the area.

It generates income into the local area, creating more employment and investment. Several businesses from the Lake District are joining Mountain Goat and heading to San Francisco for the three day event.
