Bid for more county conferences

A campaign has been launched to bring more business conferences to the Shropshire area.

Dare to be Different has been part-funded by the regional development agency Advantage West Midlands.

The project's business tourism manager, Sarah Bird, said she hoped it would bring an extra 100m into the area.

"We have over 450,000 business visitors that come into the destination every year. We are playing the big game, but we want to push it further," she said.
