Tourism Alliance Seminars on Tourism Taxes and Tourism Research

Friday 18 October 2019, 3:13 PM

The Tourism Alliance is holding two half-day seminars - one on Tourism Taxation and the other on new Tourism Research. Bookings to attend can be made by contacting Amanda Fry [email protected] 07973 658295

Tourism Taxes - 13.30 – 17:00 on Thursday 24th October 2019 (£45 +VAT)

This seminar aims to bring together all the current research and thinking on Tourism Taxes – from proposals being developed by individual destinations such as Manchester and Liverpool and the yet to be released results of the LGA’s latest research through to the findings of the Hospitality APPG inquiry and the results of ETOA’s research on the application of tourism taxes in various European destinations.

 The funding of destinations for the maintenance, development and promotion of local tourism resources is a critical issue for the future development of the UK tourism industry. This seminar aims to provide members with the latest research and thinking available to inform the debate as to who should fund this activity and most appropriate mechanism for doing so.



Tourism Research - 12:30 – 16:30 Wednesday 20th November 2019 (£35+VAT)


This year’s Tourism Research Seminar brings together the findings of recent important and innovative tourism research initiatives – from the recent Independent Office for Statistics Regulation’s investigation of whether ONS’s IPS survey is fit for purpose through to UKinbound’s important new research on the impact of Brexit on UK tourism businesses and the Tourism Alliance’s work for BEIS on reducing regulatory burden for tourism SMEs. There is also London First’s game-changing research on how big data can be used to accurately map tourism flows and inform destination marketing campaigns. This is one of the most exciting pieces of tourism research I’ve seen for many years and showcases what could be achieved as a result of establishing the Tourism Deal’s  Data Hub.
