Our first Open Meeting of the year will give those of you involved in the County's tourism, leisure and hospitality industries, the opportunity to hear about the plans for promoting Carmarthenshire as a visitor destination during 2019's Year of Discovery- put your thoughts forward and find out how your business can benefit from the activities.  

There will also be a chance to hear from some new CTA members or those who are offering something new or different in their businesses this year - be inspired and be informed, and see how you can work together in partnership.
