UK Government unveils Tourism Recovery Plan, with business events on the agenda

The UK Government has unveiled its new Tourism Recovery Plan to help the sector build back better from the pandemic, which includes benefits for the business events industry, such as investment in the sector around the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. A review into how the UK's Destination Management Offices are run is also underway and this could yield further benefit to the business travel and events industry. The plan aims to recover domestic tourism to pre-pandemic levels by 2022 and international tourism by 2023, which the Government says is at least a year faster than independent forecasts predict.

The scheme includes a new rail pass and vouchers for popular tourist attractions. A GBP10m voucher scheme will be launched by The National Lottery this autumn to encourage trips beyond the peak summer season, with players having the chance to claim vouchers to redeem at tourist attractions across the UK between September 2021 and March 2022. A rail pass for "staycationers" will be launched later in the year.

The new pass will build on the BritRail pass, which is sold through VisitBritain and currently gives international visitors flexible travel across the country, as well as providing discounted entry to tourism attractions.

Data

There will be a new focus on technology and data. The Government says it will explore how tourism data collected at the border can support the sector. The Government has said it will develop a Sustainable Tourism Plan which will look at further measures to reduce the impact of tourism on our environment.

Pre-pandemic, England looked set to hit 100m domestic overnight trips in 2020. In 2019, 41m international visitors came to the UK for business or leisure, spending over GBP28bn while here and putting the UK in the top five countries globally for inbound visitor spending. However, the sector has been hugely affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, with cities among the most impacted areas.

GBP19m has also been earmarked for marketing campaigns to promote cities and towns across the country, with a GBP5.5m domestic campaign already underway.

Event importance

The plan also looks ahead to 2022, a year in which the UK will showcase the nation on the world stage with a triumvirate of major events. The Queen's Platinum Jubilee, Festival UK 2022 and the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. Tourism minister Nigel Huddleston MP said: "The Tourism Recovery Plan is our blueprint for how the sector can build back better from the pandemic, even faster than forecasts predict.

"It's been a challenging year for the tourism sector, especially for our cities, but I know they stand ready to welcome visitors back and I encourage everyone to rediscover the UK's fantastic tourism offer." Michael Hirst OBE, chairman, Events Industry Board, said: "Meetings and conferences, exhibitions and trade shows are crucial to the UK's recovery in showcasing innovation, growing international visitors, attracting inward investment and creating jobs. "We are delighted to see this recognised within the Recovery Plan which includes expansion of VisitBritain's support programmes to include a UK-wide domestic fund, greater cross Whitehall working and enhanced ministerial advocacy support plus elements related to sustainability, skills and accessibility.

We are committed to working with Government to ensure the UK retains and enhances its position as a leading European nation for hosting business events."

Recovery plan for UK holidays announced

VisitBritain hails "welcome and important step" A new rail pass and vouchers for popular tourist attractions are part of a plan to return domestic tourism to pre-pandemic levels by 2022 and international tourism by 2023, the government has said. A GBP10 million voucher scheme will be launched by The National Lottery this autumn to encourage trips beyond the peak summer season, with players having the chance to claim vouchers to redeem at tourist attractions across the UK between September 2021 and March 2022.

A rail pass for "staycationers" will be launched later this year, and will hope to build on the success of the BritRail pass, which is sold through VisitBritain and currently gives international visitors flexible travel across the country, as well as discounted entry to tourism attractions. The government said it will explore how tourism data collected at the border can support the sector and we will look to create a tourism data hub to give the sector access to "robust, accessible and timely data". The hub, it said, could track consumer trends in travel, such as the growth in active tourism such as watersports and hiking, and booking of sustainable tourism experiences.

Tourism minister Nigel Huddleston MP said: "Our brilliant tourism sector is one of our country's greatest assets, making a huge contribution to our economy and delivering jobs across all communities. This is why we've provided it with GBP25 billion in support so far during the Covid-19 pandemic. More: Sign up to our Weekly Digest newsletter

It's been a challenging year for the tourism sector, especially for our cities, but I know they stand ready to welcome visitors back and I encourage everyone to rediscover the UK's fantastic tourism offer." VisitBritain chairman Lord Patrick McLoughlin said: "The UK government's Tourism Recovery Plan is a welcome and important step on the industry's road to recovery, recognising the economic potential of the sector, setting out a clear policy direction for the future and outlining the ambitions for domestic and international tourism.

"Tourism is a critical industry, a powerhouse of innovation, creativity and employment, injecting cash into the economy with a track record for growth and levelling-up, supporting local economies in every part of the UK and strengthening our place on the world stage. "By working together to drive demand and build back visitor spend as quickly as possible we can emerge from the pandemic and also look towards a brighter future building an industry that is more resilient, sustainable, inclusive and innovative. "Our spending review bid this year will seek to support the plan's ambitions and to build on the successful projects we have been running, working with the UK government and across the industry to cement the recovery and the future of one of this country's greatest industries."

The government will develop a Sustainable Tourism Plan as part of the discussion about sustainable travel. It said this will look at further measures to reduce the impact of tourism on our environment while balancing the needs of local communities with the economic benefits generated by tourism. The Plan will build on the significant investments in sustainable tourism already underway, such as the completion of the England Coast Path - the longest of its type in the world - and the almost GBP1 billion investment in electric vehicle charging hubs at service stations.

Pre-pandemic, England looked set to hit 100 million domestic overnight trips in 2020. In 2019, 41 million international visitors came to the UK for business or leisure, spending over GBP28 billion whilst here and putting the UK in the top 5 countries globally for inbound visitor spending.

"Our model is no service and no marketing. "Some will understand us, some won't. There are already around 30 businesses that will fill 70 percent of our shops.

"I have just now met with a manufacturer with a turnover of GBP150billion and we signed for eight SKUs." Mere is known to have adopted a 'no-frills' model of food shopping which sees suppliers deliver directly to its supermarket stores, which double up as the company's warehouses. This allows the supermarket to keep costs low for shoppers.

Each Mere store in the UK will be around 10,000 sq ft, including a walk-in chiller room and a huge freezer to allow multi-temperature ranges to be sold from the pallet they arrive on.

In other supermarket news, Sainsbury's recently announced it would be opening more Neighbourhood Hub stores, bringing the total to seven in the UK.

The new stores offer customers a larger selection of products to choose from as well as having a new store layout and an Argos integrated into the majority of them.

Ministers aim to spur domestic tourism with cut-price UK rail pass

The government has announced plans to kickstart the domestic tourism industry after months of restrictions on travel, socialising and hospitality, including a new rail pass and vouchers for popular attractions.

In a bid to encourage people to holiday at home instead of abroad, an alternative to the "BritRail" pass for foreign visitors will be launched, letting Britons travel across the UK cheaper on certain days of their break, and possibly allowing children to travel free.

To support the tourism industry after the summer getaway peak, the National Lottery will also launch a GBP10m voucher scheme for people to redeem discount tickets at attractions, running from September 2021 to March 2022.

Details about how much the rail pass will cost and which venues the vouchers can be used at are expected to come later this summer but outline plans have been announced in a bid to buoy the sector, which was been hit hard by repeated lockdowns and confusion over travel advice.

The tourism recovery plan to be released on Friday also includes the creation of a new data hub to track the growth in popularity of activities such as watersports, hiking and more environmentally-friendly experiences, and launching a consultation on creating a register of all holiday-let accommodation.

Ministers want domestic tourism to return to pre-pandemic levels by 2022, and international tourism by 2023, encouraging spending and travel across the UK before major events next year including the Queen's platinum jubilee and the Commonwealth Games, due to be held in Birmingham.

Ros Pritchard, director general of the British Holiday and Home Parks Association, who also sits on the government's Tourism Industry Council, raised concern that holiday parks and campsites were often in rural beauty spots far from transport hubs, so initiatives to increase travel by public transport would not be a silver bullet.

But she welcomed a promise from ministers to provide more guidance for how holiday firms could help achieve the UK's carbon-neutral objective, emphasising the "economic, employment and wellbeing benefits" of boosting domestic tourism.

Labour dismissed the plan as mere "window-dressing". Alex Sobel, the shadow tourism minster, said the industry needed "proper support". He added: "There is still nothing for all of those excluded from the chancellor's support schemes, and calls from businesses to give flexibility to repay debt taken on during the crisis have fallen on deaf ears.

Rather than gimmicks, the government should urgently bring forward a coherent strategy to support the sector."
