is pleased to announce the following forthcoming conference:


Film, Television, Tourism and Regeneration

A One Day International Conference

15th November 2007Leeds, UK

There are close and increasingly recognised relationships between the film and television industries, tourism development and regeneration programmes across the UK and internationally. The connections between the ‘real’ and imagined places shown on screen with tourism promotion, the development of tourism products and packages and tourist demand are becoming widely recognised by destination marketing agencies and private sector tourism organisations. However, the relationships between film, television and tourism are not fully understood and film tourism has often developed in an ad-hoc, unplanned and opportunistic way.

As core components of the ‘creative industries’, film, television and digital sectors also play a key role in regeneration programmes in cities and regions across the UK and internationally. Many of these regeneration initiatives connect with tourism through the visitor economy.

The tourism and regeneration sectors and the film and television industries and associated agencies have differing objectives but share common ground in their use of film and TV locations and the generation and distribution of moving images. The connections between these sectors are often subtle, informal and indirect and are not always recognised and planned by film makers, tourism agencies and operators and regeneration professionals.  

Conference Speakers
The conference will feature keynote presentations from leading experts and professionals in the film, TV, tourism and regeneration sectors. There will also be opportunities for networking, discussion and questions.
