As part of the celebrations we are running a social media campaign using #VBEV50years and we want to hear from you.
Tourism is one of the UK’s most valuable export industries and growing faster than many other sectors and we want to shout about it.
Worth £127 billion to the economy overall, the UK’s tourism’s industry, worth 9% of GDP and supporting 10% of all jobs, is full of innovators, an industry which spans the country and where small changes have a big impact on our economy. This year we mark our 50th anniversary and our priority continues to be to work collaboratively with businesses and organisations across the tourism landscape and with the UK Government.
