UK hotels forecast update 2016 and 2017

2016 is expected to see solid but weaker growth in the regions and slightly healthier, but modest growth in London.

Spotlight on London: Still room for more modest growth

London saw variable growth in 2015, following a record 2014.

Spotlight on Edinburgh: Focus on tourism industry

2016 will concentrate on developing a cohesive Glasgow - Edinburgh tourism industry.

Risk and cyber security

There has always been an explicit driver for risk management but responding to risks in today’s complex and changing market requires a new focus.

Economic, Travel and Supply Outlook

Many visitors to Europe come from further afield and the improving economic situation in the US should lead to increased numbers of tourists in the future. 

Deal talk: UK driving Europe hotel deals
