Almost 18 months on from the hugely significant referendum decision to leave the EU, what is the outlook for the travel and tourism industry? 

Inbound tourism seems to have benefitted so far; how long will this continue?

What are the key areas that we should be asking the Government to focus on in its negotiations with Brussels?

To gain key insights into how the process and after-effects of Brexit are and will affect tourism don’t miss this key event with our expert panel.

The discussion will take place on board the R. S. Hispaniola, moored opposite the London Eye and with views - appropriately - of the Houses of Parliament and there will be ample time for networking over a drink and refreshments afterwards.
