(London) – September 2021 – Global independent marketing and communications agency, FINN Partners has been appointed to provide public relations services for Experience Oxfordshire to support the Destination Management Organisation in boosting both leisure and business visits as the UK tourism industry gears up for recovery this year and into 2022.
