Our Clients and Partners Say......

The Big Weekend in Kent is a fantastic collaboration and a great opportunity for our business. The results were overwhelming for our first time ever running an event - we had around 1,000 visitors.
— Tourism Business, Visit Kent
The Big Weekend has helped raise awareness of Visit Essex as a leading destination management organisation within the county, adding another marketing dimension to our activities and offering us a way to connect directly with our businesses, as well as the general public.
— Carol Jolly, Marketing & PR Manager, Visit Essex
Our Introduction to Tourism Workshop with Go To Places was energising, motivating and fun. Our team came back to the office enthused and full of new ideas!
— Liz Woodfield, Director, Commonwealth War Graves Commission
Go To Places helped us consider the options we had available to us to support our DMO to become more sustainable and strategic. In a rapidly changing environment for tourism, this has enabled us to get ahead of the game and we are now implementing a new strategic organisation with a bigger reach. This would not have been possible without the initial options appraisal that Go To Places undertook for us.
— John Wilkinson, Director, Bath and Northeast Somerset Council
Go To Places supported us throughout the campaign from collecting the information needed to build the website, to testing and advice on which marketing channels had been most successful. When things didn’t go according to plan there was always someone available to contact, even though it may have been outside of normal working hours.
