Our Projects

Visit Ipswich

We manage the tourism body for Ipswich.

As part of our commitment, we set-up the Visit Ipswich; a not-for-profit membership DMO (Destination Marketing Organisation) which is the official voice for tourism in Ipswich. The Ipswich Central marketing team works with the Visit Ipswich Board to promote Ipswich further afield; with an aim to attract more visitors and tourists to the town for day visits and overnight stays.

Visit Ipswich allows the reach of our All About Ipswich campaigns to be even further, which means BID businesses are promoted even further across Suffolk, the East of England and the rest of the UK.

We also work closely with the other tourism bodies in Suffolk (The Suffolk Coast, Bury St Edmunds & Beyond and Discover Newmarket) as well as the county brand; Visit Suffolk, to combine resources and create stronger campaigns that aim to raise awareness of the joys of Suffolk.
