You are invited to take part in the next Tourism Business Survey for North East England.
This survey will be sent to tourism businesses every 3 months to gain an understanding of performance and confidence as well as an insight into the issues businesses are facing.
According to the results of the first quarterly business survey of 2014, 48% of businesses have seen their overall performance increase from January to March compared to the same period in 2013, with 19% of businesses reporting a downturn. Although Easter fell outside of Quarter 1, the opportunity was taken to ask about Easter performance. 81% of businesses said performance was either the same or better than last year.
Results from the Q1 Business Survey highlighted areas around communication that Northumberland Tourism have already identified as needing to be addressed.
As a result of this we are planning to hold a working group to get direct input from businesses about how Northumberland Tourism communicates with tourism businesses and what we can do to build better relationships and channels of communication that flow both ways.
