Webinar: International Travel & Tourism Market
Focus on the United Kingdom

On Wednesday September 29, 2010 at 11:00am EDT (8:00am PDT), the U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Travel and Tourism Industries (OTTI) and the Commercial Service Travel & Tourism Team will host the third in a series of webinars. This webinar on international travel and tourism markets will focus on one of America's most mature and most important markets, the United Kingdom.

The September 29th webinar will cover international arrivals from the United Kingdom, destinations most visited, spending patterns, and trends from this important key market. The program will highlight critical data from the Office of Travel & Tourism Industries and market intelligence from the U.S. Commercial Service office in London, United Kingdom. Participants will get a better understanding of the market and will hear some expected trends for 2010 and beyond. The United Kingdom has long ranked as one of America's top overseas arrivals markets, currently lagging only Japan, and is forecast to maintain its importance through 2014. Learn how to use some of the available data to make better decisions. Couple that with the products and services available from the Department of Commerce to make your international marketing efforts more effective in the United Kingdom.
