Broadcast from London

Headline Speakers

The importance of culture, tourism and sport in addressing issues such as social inclusion; health and crime is becoming increasingly apparent. But despite an annual £3billion spend on services, local government is still financially restricted in the drive to improve services

In the face of budget cuts local government; the voluntary sector and private providers have needed to explore new ways of commissioning and delivering services to make savings; generate income and ultimately improve standards in service delivery.

In its 8th year, this conference brought together senior officers and elected members with local partners and national development agencies to explore best practice in developing and delivering services within the culture, tourism and sport sector.
