about visit north norfolk

Visit North Norfolk, a membership organisation, is the official Destination Management Organisation (DMO) for the area, operating on a not-for-profit basis and delivering the official tourism website and marketing activity for North Norfolk District Council.

DMOs are organisations charged with representing a specific destination and helping the long-term development of the local tourism economy through targeted and strategic campaigns. Visit North Norfolk is responsible for promoting all that the area has to offer at local, regional and national levels and is affiliated with Visit East of England and Visit Norfolk. Visit North Norfolk, as the accredited authoritative DMO for north Norfolk, is also affiliated with Visit Britain.

Visit North Norfolk delivers two key aspects of the local tourism economy: support for businesses and the promotion of the area to potential visitors, providing a major channel for communication, support and access to market for the tourism industry.

By developing promotional campaigns and initiatives, Visit North Norfolk works with other DMOs to grow the area's visitor economy which is worth £529m and supports nearly 12,000 jobs. Marketing activity is supported by North Norfolk District Council and private business sponsorship and its core business is self-sustaining through business membership funding. Visit North Norfolk is a business-led DMO, operated by a group of local business leaders (in partnership with North Norfolk District Council). This meets the Government's stated direction of encouraging businesses to become more directly responsible for tourism promotion.

The board comprises the following directors:
Chair: Andrew Hird, General Manager of Woodland Holiday Park
Mark Noble, Trustee of Pensthorpe Conservation Trust
Bee Hopkins, former owner of The Hoste
Robert Young, Head of Economic & Community Development at North Norfolk District Council.
