Brochure Marketing Group Keeps On Growing

We can reveal that (as of posting this blog entry) there are 213 members of our Brochure Marketing group on LinkedIn. A wide variety of people involved in the promotional print industry continue to sign-up on a daily basis and there are many interesting conversations taking place on the official forum. Please feel free to pose a question or join in one of the many fascinating discussions – you don’t need to be a group member to get involved. Clients, business associates and employees of LDS Tourism Services Ltd. are also encouraged to join the Company’s own special group (Friends of LDS Tourism Services).

Last week, Diana and Paula spent several hours ambling around the Albert Dock – Liverpool’s “most visited” attraction. They were delighted to discover the area buzzing with activity as tourists, shoppers and diners made the most of the first-rate amenities on offer, including a splendid array of museums, restaurants and shops. Currently celebrating its 20th anniversary, Albert Dock has seen a massive increase in visitor numbers this year (probably assisted by the Liverpool 08 festivities) and the new Arena is proving to be a great success.

As a follow-up to our previous article on this blog, we now see that a train company poll has suggested that a third of British holidaymakers intend to stay in UK this summer. It would seem that many people are rethinking their travel plans due to the prospect of long airport delays and flight disruption. The survey shows that one in five Britons have decided not to travel by air because they feel anxious, and are instead opting for the train, car, coach or ferry. When it comes to choosing their preferred method of transport, 82% of travellers felt that the biggest consideration was cost, followed by how comfortable and convenient it is (66%), how quickly they get to their destination (63%) and how stressful/relaxing the journey will be (34%).

Everybody at LDSTS is braced for the school holidays. We’ve had an incredibly busy summer thus far, so it is likely to be a hectic period for us. We can also announce that we have just signed a contract giving us exclusive rights to display literature in Poplar 2000 Services, on the M6/56 in Lymm. Please contact Hayley at hayley@ldsts.co.uk if you would like further information about this or anything else.

Finally, we would like to share a noteworthy link:
