Join a national campaign to support your industry
VisitEngland is proud to lead the annual English Tourism Week campaign, celebrating our exciting, diverse and vibrant sector and raising awareness of the enormous contribution English tourism makes to the UK economy.
Making up 80% of the UK’s visitor economy, English tourism generates £106 billion a year, supports 2.6 million jobs and is a major employer of school leavers and young people, as well as an incubator for entrepreneurs and innovation.
English Tourism Week (18-25 April 2020) provides an essential opportunity to raise awareness and the profile of the sector to key stakeholders, with VisitEngland working to support English destinations with political engagement nationally, regionally and locally.
The dates chosen for 2020 for the first time includes St. George’s Day, seamlessly tying England’s national day to our industry and providing a strong media hook to showcase the tourism offer across England.
Each MP that takes time to visit their local tourism businesses is supported with the information they need to understand just how important tourism is in their local area. From site visits to round table discussions, ETW provides the spotlight to put tourism front of mind with key stakeholders and showcase the amazing work that goes on each and every day to build strong and resilient destinations.
