The rise of a holiday letting business and importance of an online presence in the tourism industry will be the focus of a breakfast event.

Broadland Business Forum will be celebrating 25 years of Norfolk Country Cottages with company director Tom Ellis outlining how the industry has embraced the digital world.

The Holt-based firm has evolved from a family gathered round the kitchen table to a team of 14.

The forum will be held at Sprowston Manor on Wednesday, July 12, from 7.30am to 9.30am.

Also speaking at the event will be Roger Margand and Alistair Ponder of Spire Solicitors, who will be outlining the upcoming changes in data protection and how your business must prepare.

Places cost £15, which includes a full English breakfast, and are served on a first come first served basis. To book email or call on 01603 702374.
