supper club - cruise ship terminal discussion

City businesses are to debate whether a cruise terminal could put Plymouth on the global tourism map at City College’s Business Supper Club.

Controversial debate and honest opinions are the name of the game at City College’s Business Supper Club, run in partnership with The Herald. The only event of its kind in Plymouth, it enables business professionals to debate key topics that matter to the South West.

On Thursday 22 September, businesses will come together to discuss the subject of ‘Cruise Liner Terminal: The Berth of Economic Prosperity’ with special guest speaker Amanda Lumley, Chief Executive of Destination Plymouth.

Pauline Hands, Director of Marketing and Corporate Relations at City College said: “The College is delighted to welcome Amanda Lumley to share her views on the financial benefits of building a cruise liner terminal. I think her insights into how a terminal could put Plymouth on the map of global destinations will be of particular interest to businesses in the City looking at their future economic prosperity and tourism in Britain’s Ocean City.”

This event is part of the Ocean City Festival an annual occasion designed to promote what Plymouth has to offer residents, visitors, scientists and adventurers. The aim is to raise awareness, nationally and internationally, of Plymouth’s role as the leading ocean city in the UK for research, leisure, heritage and local produce.

The Business Supper Club costs only £17 per person to attend, including a delicious two course meal with wine served in City College’s PL1 Restaurant. The event starts at 5.45pm and finishes 9.00pm. To reserve your place at this popular event, please call 01752 305026 or e-mail
