Our marketing response to COVID-19 so far has focused on sharing everything that is great about Britain – bringing “armchair” travel content to consumers to help them beat the boredom and keep Britain top of mind during the crisis phase. Thank you for helping us to highlight your virtual tours and experiences and heart-warming stories.
As lockdown restrictions gradually begin to lift in the UK and we want to inspire visitors to dream about their future trips to Britain when they will be able to travel here again through wish-list style content.
You can help us to inspire our audience by sharing the following for consideration and potential use on our consumer marketing channels:
- Stories of people / tourism businesses that are adapting and / or innovating as they re-open – creative and unique examples
- Hidden gem content / story ideas (e.g. walks, trails, stately homes, gardens, Instagrammable villages, lesser known locations etc.) Please provide a brief paragraph on the hidden gem and a web link to more information on your destination/partner website and be able to provide relevant imagery
- News and major up-coming events (where applicable, including stand-out virtual experiences)
A group has been established to support the industry once Britain and markets move into the recovery phase. We will continue to update you regularly.
We are working on making more guidance available to support SMEs during this period. Please follow our corporate website and subscribe to our industry newsletter for more information as it becomes available.
