Margaret Faull, Director, National Coal Mining Museum

NCMThrough its membership of Welcome to Yorkshire, the National Coal Mining Museum for England has significantly benefitted from having the opportunity to access the invaluable expertise of the WTY team. Their support has included discussion of marketing plans and PR, arrangement of a journalist familiarisation visit, business tourism advice, as well as ongoing contact with regards to events and opportunities. As the Director of a national museum located in Yorkshire, I have no hesitation in recommending the services that Welcome to Yorkshire is able to offer its members.

Cheryl Williams, Director, Yorkshire Wildlife Park

Meerkat standing and children in windowAs Yorkshire Wildlife Park only opened in April 2009 - we had a major challenge ahead to raise awareness in the region. Budget was especially tight in the beginning and we found that our membership gave us many benefits - an excellent outlet for our PR stories, support from the business development and research team, access to targeted marketing campaigns and of course to the award winning Welcome to Yorkshire website which has proved one an important source of traffic to our own website. W2Y has provided an excellent professional resource for us - and also a perfect platform for networking with other professional tourism professionals that we now work in partnership with'

Nick Mead, Lady Teal Boutique Hotel Boat

Lady TealWe joined Welcome to Yorkshire unsure what benefit we would get. We have found them to be very proactive and the relationship has led to increased media coverage, and most importantly bookings that we would not otherwise have received. We worked with them and it has paid dividends.
