The funding for the London Cultural Improvement Programme came to an end in 2011. This website will remain live to ensure that the learning and resources from the programme are still available. For an overview of the programme visit the LCIP Index.
On Thursday 17th September 2009, The Case for Tourism: Boosting the local economy through tourism and culture was held at the new, state-of-the-art City of London Information Centre in St Paul's Churchyard.
Members from a range of portfolios and from across the capital met with cultural agencies to discuss examples of best practice in developing the visitor economy, promoting cultural destinations, and the important role local authority stakeholders play in ensuring London remains one of the top destinations in the world for both leisure and business visitors, as well as Londoners themselves.
