Kate Measures' Happy Families Showcase

I attended (and photographed) Kate Measures' Happy Families Showcase today, a conference of professionals pooling their insights on how to improve visitor experiences for families. Speakers were from the National Trust, Woodland Trust and London Transport Museum. I would highly recommend their events for professionals working in the tourism sector.
