Why we have joined UKinbound
UK Inbound use a formula that has proved to be highly successful. They bring tour operators into the area and run one-to-one workshops with buyers and suppliers, they run familiarisation trips and hold an annual convention enabling members to meet the buyers.
UK Inbound ensure that OTA’s (Online Travel Agents) receive a copy of your guide, so they will buy into your tours and help you to work alongside suppliers. They help your end product meet the buyer.
UK Inbound also lobby the Government over factors that limit the growth of tourism, for example, air passenger duty and VAT to ensure the UK remains competitive and attractive to overseas tourists.
Recently the Scottish Government reduced the flight duty for inbound flights by 50%, with the aim of scrapping it completely, this means that there will be a greater volume of overseas tourists filtering into the North of England from Scotland, rather than up from London.
UKIB is a very welcoming organisation, and those that get the most out of it are the ones that engage, attend events and make use of all the member benefits.
