Lobbying For Cumbria
As the official voice of Cumbria’s visitor economy, Cumbria Tourism stands up for the issues that matter to tourism and hospitality businesses – lobbying high-level decision-makers and ensuring your collective needs are heard loud and clear both regionally and nationally.
As well as working with partners like VisitEngland/VisitBritain, UK Hospitality and the Tourism Alliance, we use our rich pool of research and up-to-date market intelligence to help inform and shape strategic direction for a wide range of politicians and influential figures.
Direct feedback from our member businesses has enabled Cumbria Tourism to provide robust, ‘real time’ information for a series of public consultations. In the last 12 months we have held face-to-face meetings with Government Ministers, lobbied in the House of Lords, given evidence to Parliament and the Bank of England, and held regular updates with MPs.
We are also proud to be working alongside industry-leading Strategic Partners, who offer invaluable insight, expertise and funding to support our work on behalf of the tourism industry.
Giving tourism businesses a voice
We regularly ask our member businesses for up-to-date data and first-hand feedback. Whether that’s through our anonymous business tracker surveys or specific case studies on emerging issues, your evidence is fundamental to shaping our strategic direction and enables us to make Cumbria’s case with national decision-makers and industry bodies.
Thank you for continuing to make your voice heard in such high numbers. Together we are stronger.
