An overview of the UK’s top 10 tourism markets highlights the fact that Europe remains the UK’s main source of tourism, despite the continuing economic uncertainty. However we are calculating a slight decline on our previous Q4 forecast as the continuing economic downturn in much of Europe over this period is likely to act as a deterrent for potential tourists. However the other regions are forecast to see a growth in arrivals over 2013 and we have increased our forecasts for inbound tourists from these regions. After a period of significant infrastructure development and hotel-building activity in the run-up to the 2012 Olympic Games, the scene may now be set for more modest overall growth in the UK’s hotel industry. Recent developments include: – Accor is launching a new brand in the UK, the Adiago aparthotels, the first of which opened in Liverpool in March 2013. – The group also re-launched their Mercure hotel in London in June 2013, following an extensive redesign of the hotel. It is the flagship UK hotel in a brand Accor is hoping to double the size of by 2016. – Over the past quarter ICHG has signed three new hotels to its Holiday Inn brand. UK construction company Balfour Beatty secured a contract worth GBP121mn (US$181.5mn) to build a hotel, leisure and apartment complex for Grove Developments in North Greenwich Peninsula in London. – China-based commercial property and entertainment conglomerate Dalian Wanda Group is to develop a hotel and residential project in London. – UK conglomerate Rigby Group has acquired a majority stake in Exeter International Airport. – The GBP80mn (US$123.5mn) redevelopment of the terminal at Stansted Airport has begun. – UK airports operator Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has awarded BAM Construct, Carillion and Galliford Try a contract for its capital delivery programme framework worth up to GBP100mn (US $156.65mn) annually. – Birmingham International Airport has detailed plans to expand its capacity to rival that of Heathrow.
