Are you Brexit Ready?
With continuing uncertainty around Brexit tourism businesses across Cumbria need to make sure they are fully prepared for all outcomes.
Cumbria Tourism have created a package of resources for tourism businesses across the county as well as two events designed to educate owners, managers and staff on best practice and key issues.
“Talking to businesses in recent weeks and months, the uncertainty around Brexit, labour issues related to migrant workers and market volatility are ongoing concerns, as we see visitors taking a ‘watch and see’ approach and tightening their belts around discretionary spend.
“At the same time, there are real opportunities to further grow the trade in international visitors in a range of non-EU countries, particularly key markets such as the USA, India and China. Cumbria Tourism continues to work actively with partners to tap into these opportunities, as well as partnering with VisitBritain to reassure European visitors to the UK.
“We know from past experience that our tourism businesses are very resilient. They understand that adapting and innovating is the key to navigating through uncertain times, but with an array of information bombarding us on what seems like a daily basis, we have developed this guide to help you make sense of the key Brexit-related issues affecting our industry.”
