Tourism Society and TravelGBI to debate Brexit

The Tourism Society has teamed with TravelGBI to host a debate about the outlook for tourism in the Brexit negotiations.

A year on from the hugely significant referendum decision to leave the EU, the joint debate will look at how domestic and inbound tourism seem to have benefited so far – but the panel of experts will ask how long this may continue.

Also on the agenda will be key areas for the government to focus on in its negotiations with Brussels, and changing priorities with the hung parliament.

The discussion will take place on the R. S. Hispaniola, moored opposite the London Eye and with views of the Houses of Parliament. There will be time for networking with drinks and refreshments afterwards.

The event will be chaired by Ian Taylor (executive editor at Travel Weekly/TravelGBI) with panellists Kurt Janson (p, Tourism Alliance policy director; Kyle Haughton, City Cruises managing director; Philip Shepherd, PwC retail, consumer and leisure partner; and Tom Jenkins ETOA – European Tourism Association chief executive.

Called The EU referendum and Brexit – one year on, the debate will be on July 5.
