Brookfield Finance join Visit Somerset as Headline Sponsor
John Turner, Visit Somerset CEO, said: “We are delighted with this news and the fact we have another major business in the West Country joining Visit Somerset in an effort to deliver within the Visitor Economy and beyond. I will look forward to personally supporting and engaging with the Brookfield team in an effort to support their own business objectives, as well as supporting our wider businesses ensuring that they are receiving the right financial support during these times of uncertainty.”
Brookfield Finance said: “Brookfield Finance are thrilled to announce that we’ve joined forces with Visit Somerset to offer financial support and advice to businesses in the tourism sector across the South West. We’re really excited to develop relationships and opportunities with Visit Somerset’s members in 2019.
"Somerset and its neighbouring counties offer beautiful coastlines, rich countryside and a diverse choice of tourist destinations and attractions to suit all tastes and ages which attract visitors from all over the world.
"Tourism is one of the biggest and fastest growing industries globally, so it’s vital to the success of our local economy and has an impact across the South of England on local businesses and employment.
"Businesses in the tourism industry can be affected by seasonal trends and demands, and this can have a knock-on effect on the success of the business and the livelihood of business owners. Having an understanding of these issues is paramount for us, as we recognise many businesses are forced to consider diversification to stay afloat out of season.
"It’s important to ensure that tourism within Somerset and its neighbouring counties continues to thrive, bringing in much needed revenue to our region and keeping local people employed.
"As specialist ccommercial brokers, we’re experts in finding the right financial solution tailored to fit your individual business requirements, however big or small. We believe in building long term relationships with all our customers, gaining a full understanding of their businesses, helping them achieve their long - and short- term goals and fulfilling their full potential.
"We’re looking forward to working with Visit Somerset and their members to keep tourism well and truly on the Somerset map."
