The Masterclass will provide both practical insights into recent theoretical advances and research-based evidence for destinations and government organisations to explore how they plan, develop, manage and organise tourism to maximise economic benefits.
The session will also address the economic impact of tourism taxation based partly on research that Professor Blake has conducted for CutTourismVAT, outlining the reasons why reduced rates of VAT would benefit the UK. Professor Blake will also examine Brexit and Beyond and how to Maintain the UK’s Competitive Edge as an International Tourist Destination given the Brexit challenges and opportunities for the UK. The latest thinking on minimising the Brexit disruption to the tourism and travel sectors will also be explored.
