Become a Destination Bristol member today and benefit

What is membership?

The contribution made through membership goes directly into supporting work to develop the visitor economy for the Bristol region - without this financial investment the VisitBristol and MeetBristol team could not deliver the work that they do.

You in turn then receive opportunities to promote your business with a series of benefits and services designed to help you better reach a visitor audience, with specially designed marketing and business engagement programmes to assist in maximising opportunities within the business and leisure tourism industry.

As well as providing specialist marketing, sales and development opportunities, each member is also directly investing in the work undertaken to promote Bristol and the surrounding areas as one of the primary visitor destinations in the UK and Europe. This investment allows us to buy into campaigns and events where we can promote Bristol to journalists, the media, the travel trade, business agents and digital influencers to name a few. With the visitor economy to Bristol and South Gloucestershire currently worth more than £1.3bn* to the local economy, we need to be able to invest to ensure we maintain this significant return to the businesses in the city region.

Without your membership, this would not be possible

Why membership?

We aim to get to know the businesses we work with to enable us to better promote them. By knowing the objectives, aims and markets of a particular business, we can better match them with available marketing opportunities as well as other potential partners.

Joining Destination Bristol has opened up a good repertoire of marketing opportunities for my business giving us direct access to millions of potential guests. It’s a valuable tool for all businesses in Bristol trying to tap into the tourism sector. I would highly recommend working with the team at DB.” Carla Brooks Director Brooks Hotels Ltd

As well as directly supporting tourism in the Bristol city region, we are forming relationships with external suppliers to help businesses in the city save money on their overheads. We will detail these here as soon as they are confirmed so do keep checking. 

There are 4 different levels of membership available depending on your objectives and size of your business.
