Visit Britain have launched a consultation to support an industry-led bid for a new Government sector deal for tourism. The Government’s plans for an industrial strategy call for sectors to pitch for a deal. This has presented a one-off opportunity for tourism to be recognised as an industry of the future, backed by Government. All tourism businesses are invited to help shape the submission through their consultation.
Government has stated that those sectors with the broadest reach, and ability to speak with “one voice”, are the likeliest to achieve a sector deal. Consultation closes 7 August 2017.
