The tourism sector is breaking records

by Kurt Janson

While the final results are not quite in yet, it appears certain that 2011 will have been a record year for both inbound and domestic tourism in the UK. This is not to say that all sectors of the tourism industry are booming, indeed many are finding the current economic conditions very challenging, but the overall figures make very positive reading.

Time for the tourism sector to deliver

by Kurt Janson

One of the main areas in which the Tourism Alliance has been campaigning for the last five years is for the government to increase funding for the national tourism boards  VisitBritain and VisitEngland. [more...]

2012 - a crunch year for tourism

by Kurt Janson

For a number of reasons, 2012 is shaping up to be a crunch year for the UK's tourism industry. If we do well next year then the future looks more assured than it has since 2008 when the global credit crunch started. [more...]

Getting behind the daylight saving plans

by Kurt Janson

Backing a Private Member's Bill is usually seen by MPs as something to be undertaken when showing support for an issue but knowing the outcome will almost certainly fail. Without the support of the government, very few Bills ever receive the votes and the time needed to gain Royal Assent. [more...]

Celebrating English Tourism Week 2012

by Kurt Janson

The first English Tourism Week will be held between 10 and 18 March next year. It's fitting that this will be held at the beginning of a year where we are celebrating both the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and hosting the Olympic and Paralympic Games and provides us with an unprecedented opportunity to recognise and fully appreciate the size and scale of the UK tourism industry and the role it plays in the economy.

The tourism sector and 'Broken Britain'

by Kurt Janson

Following the recent riots, there has been much wringing of hands by the government and the media regarding the supposed breakdown of British society. Most of this is simply a knee-jerk reaction to be replaced by the latest "end-of-the-world-as-we-know-it" issue in a few months time. [more...]

Bringing back the Americans

by Kurt Janson

The International Passenger Survey figures for the year to date suggest that inbound tourism is starting to recover, with visitor numbers up 6 per cent since the start of 2011. Most importantly, there are signs of recovery in American inbound figures which have shown an increase of 10 per cent. [more...]

Air Passenger Duty and aviation capacity

by Kurt Janson

The government recently carried out a consultation on a restructuring of the Air Passenger Duty (APD) regime. It was originally meant to discuss the merits of moving from the current 'per passenger' regime to a 'per plane' regime, which the government preferred as a means of encouraging airlines to use more efficient aircraft.
