Cheshire and Warrington's newly-formed Local Enterprise Partnership has given Visit Chester and Cheshire (VCC) a wider remit for place marketing and promotion, as well as traditional visitor economy support. 'Marketing Cheshire' retains VCC as the consumer-facing brand with 'Invest in Cheshire' and 'Live in Cheshire' launched to develop economic growth across the sub-region as the ninth largest by GVA in England. Find out how Marketing Cheshire is getting on six months from the launch and hear an update on the success of the Celebrating Cheshire event on 16/17 September 2011.
