Since 2010, tourism has been the fastest growing sector in the UK in terms of employment. Revenue from inbound tourism has increased by 30% since 2008, making the industry the UK’s fifth largest export earner. Domestic tourism has also grown significantly and Britain is forecast to have a tourism industry worth over £257 billion by 2025 (VisitBritain.org.uk). Tourism is Blackpool’s main industry and accounts for 24,000 full time equivalent jobs, generating £1.295b within the local economy (Blackpool.gov.uk) in 2012-13.
