Financial Boost for the Groups Markets, say GTOA

The groups market received a significant boost, as outlined in Chancellor George Osbourne's Autumn Statement, according to Group Travel Organisers Association CEO Mike Bugsgang.

The £40 million Discover England Fund as well as future investment in arts and culture announced by the Chancellor will provide reassurance to group organisers and suppliers to the groups market when planning trips and marketing plans for 2017 and beyond.

Mike Bugsgang, Chief Executive of GTOA said: “These moves underscore the Government’s positive intent regarding tourism following its Five Point Plan announced by the Prime Minister earlier this year. The news has been greeted enthusiastically by GTOA members, particularly the elements regarding the funding for museums and galleries as visits to these venues are a key component of many trips arranged by organisers.”
