    by wrightie in TourismMay 10, 2017 with 5 replies and 99 views.

    I don't know if anyone saw it but I thought it was worth sharing. Love the titles they use though, Ipswich Destination Organisation Management.A new report says that tourism is worth £220m to the local economy, and it predicts that figure could grow by £65m within three years. The findings come at a critical time for the town, tonight its playing host to officials from some of the biggest tourist attractions in the country....

    Ipswich is a real tourist hotspot

    by dan5 in TourismApr 25, 2017 with 2 replies and 47 views.

    Ipswich is moving up in the world:-So we can expect roughly 3 visitors instead of 2. That should boost the economy! planemanIpswich Star has hailed again... oh my, I hate that phrase... you hail a taxi or dodge the bad weather. Too many news articles using that phrase now.National Express coach operator May weekend bookings are up 49%. That is all, more endless PR for National Express.Previously, Top 10 Easter (coach) destination.

    Latest reply: haha, I couldn't agree more. Why is the Ipswich Star even bothering with them?!I am sure National Express has got involved with Ipswich Central and its just propaganda... after all, there are elections coming up!

    Latest reply: Indeed, seems very much like it. If you cannot link those people up to genuine tourist activities... then they shouldn't shout about it being tourism related. I think the "thousands" figures is also misleading...If a coach has a capacity of 49...
