Wales shows its strength!

This is not a reference to the 51-3 defeat of the Scots Rugby XV on Saturday, but a reference to the outstanding contribution that Wales made to the best of Britain and Ireland Show at the NEC, which took place on Wednesday and Thursday of last week. This was a trade show and aimed directly at tour, bus and coach companies that are important to the life blood of tourism in Wales.

The NEC is the main exhibition centre in the UK, and the show was well attended.

For someone normally reliant on OS maps to guide him around the quiet Welsh Hills, I found it fairly simple to get lost in this giant cavernous place, which is probably going to be another casualty of the internet. It is being sold by Birmingham Council.

North Wales' Tourism Staff were in action as always.

Wales had 3 bays like this.

The Rise and Rise of Heritage Tourism was the subject of a lecture by the Tourism Society.
