Overview
Taking place in the context of the Government’s Tourism Action Plan, and with the full impact of Brexit yet to be understood, this event will provide delegates with a timely opportunity to discuss and debate future priorities for the UK tourism sector and ensuring the UK maintains an attractive, accessible and welcoming destination.

The Implications of Brexit – Maintaining the UK’s Appeal as an International Tourist Destination:

The implications of Brexit for multi-national tourism and travel organisations, the challenges and opportunities of border controls and visas for inbound and outbound EU tourism, access to EU workers and the impact on consumer rights and protections in relation to healthcare and air travel.

Visit London, Visit England, Visit Britain - Emerging Advertising Opportunities for the UK and Regional Attractions:

Ensuring the nations and regions are able to benefit from international and domestic travellers, encouraging visitors to explore beyond the south-east and the role of transport operators, local government, destinations and attractions in creating a collaborative approach to rebalancing the tourism sector.

Red Tape & Regulation – Supporting the UK’s Tourism Sector and Going for Growth:

Options for reducing red tape, developing ‘common sense’ regulation and recognising the tourism sector’s contribution to the economy and employment.
