We have added a copy of the latest British Destinations’ destination managers’ 21 Jan 21 meeting notes, together with the eighth edition of Hotel Solution’s “From Survival to Recovery” report to our C19 research page on Britishdestinations.net. Please note, the first few sentences of this page contains fixed links to other sources of covid-19 research including the VisitEngland consumer sentiment tracker currently on its 23rd wave. Links to new material are added in date order immediately below that: https://britishdestinations.net/c19-research/ .
The destination managers’ meeting was attended by c 20 member representatives. The notes are intended as a means of briefing those members unable to attend, rather than a record of proceedings for those that did. The meetings allows hard pressed managers to share experiences and undertake a reality check on their own situation and emerging plans. It also ensures that the secretariat have an up-to-date understanding of the current situation and clear direction regarding immediate and the longer term actions required.
The next meeting will take place in early March, post the 3 March Westminster budget (date and details to follow). If you are not in receipt of the invitations to these meetings please let me know. Certain selected, non-member guests may also be included, again please let me know if you would like your attendance to be considered.
