Press Release from VisitBritain (London: 30th March 2011) that may be of interest to my Tourism business visitors –

A new partnership agreement now allows users to benefit from user-generated content provided by TripAdvisor®, the world’s largest travel website.

In the new partnership, TripAdvisor content relating to key British tourist destinations is available on a family of 30 websites in 21 different languages.
