MPs will share video messages for English Tourism Week







This year's English Tourism Week will be a virtual event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, which usually takes place at the end of March, will be held online next week (May 25-31).

VisitEngland has asked MPs to record video messages for use on their social media channels during English Tourism Week, pledging their support for tourism and highlighting the sector's economic importance to their local economies.

On Thursday May 28, as part of English Tourism Week, VisitEngland is also asking MPs to share photos and social media posts from previous English Tourism Weeks or from their favourite English holiday destinations using the hashtags #ThrowbackThursday and #EnglishTourismWeek20.

Tourism Minister Nigel Huddleston said: "English Tourism Week recognises the important role the industry plays in our local, regional and national economies, supporting jobs and attracting investment.

"This is a challenging time for the industry and we're providing support through an unprecedented government package for businesses and workers. I hope everyone will use English Tourism Week as an opportunity to celebrate the sector, and we'll be encouraging people to book a great British holiday as soon as it is safe to do."

VisitEngland director Andrew Stokes added: "English Tourism Week is all about highlighting the economic benefits that tourism brings to local economies, celebrating our diverse and exciting sector, and showcasing the quality, range and value of English tourism.

"While we cannot run events as usual this year, the spirit of the week has never been more important. Tourism has been one of the first and hardest hit economic sectors due to the Covid-19 pandemic and this year's virtual week is dedicated to showing support for the industry, the millions of people who work in it and the hundreds of thousands of businesses impacted.

"It is also about looking towards the future recovery and doing everything we can right now to ensure that tourism can bounce back to once again become one of the most successful and vibrant sectors of the economy."
