One year on from the hugely significant referendum decision to leave the EU, what is the outlook for the travel and tourism industry? Domestic and inbound tourism seems to have benefitted so far; how long will this continue and will the appeal of an overseas holiday increase again?

What are the key areas that we should be asking the government to focus on in its negotiations with Brussels, and now with a general election taking place will the priorities change according to who forms the new government? The only certainty is that the situation is evolving rapidly.

To gain key insights into how the process and after-effects of Brexit 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.
