Newhaven place marketing – focus group: visitor economy

As I’m sure you’ll agree, economic success is good news for each and every business and organisation based in Newhaven. A more successful economic area means more jobs, more visitors, increased investment, improved skills and more money in the local economy – which is something we’d all like to see.

We have a fantastic set of assets in Newhaven, but we believe that more needs to be done to raise its profile and image to make the outside world, in particular potential investors, workers and visitors aware of our offer, with a view to securing more investment, stimulating more visitor spending and attracting more talent to the area. We also want to harness local pride in our local area.

One of our priorities is to build on the success of previous work with partner organisations and the business community to develop the ‘story’ for Newhaven, identifying what makes us distinctive, and creating a competitive, coherent and compelling narrative and brand proposition that we can all use as ambassadors for the area.

We would very much welcome your insight and opinions in support of this piece of work to help us shape that story by attending a visitor economy focus group session with up to nine other leaders in your sector.

Date: Thursday 5th December
Time: 2:30pm-4pm
Venue: Enterprise Centre, Newhaven

We very much hope that you will be able to be involved in this exciting project. To confirm your attendance please email us back on this email or if you have any further questions about this work please contact Victoria at
