Webinar: Brexit – What Does It Mean for the Attractions Industry?
1-2 p.m. CEST
The UK has now left the European Union, yet the full impacts of Brexit remain unknown. Owen Ralph will moderate a panel discussion to discuss these questions and more:
- Could British attractions experience a boost as families decide to holiday at home?
- Will a weak pound encourage more EU citizens to visit the UK and stimulate exports for British businesses?
- Will bureaucracy and red tape make trade with EU nations more difficult?
At the end of this webinar, participants will understand what a few leading industry experts hope is on the horizon.
