Our leisure and tourism team has the knowledge and ability to provide pragmatic and commercially focused advice to national and international businesses.

the sector

The leisure and tourism sector has been impacted by an array of external factors in recent years from socio-political impacts on disposable to environmental issues impacting travel ability. Within the sector there remains a strong demand for high quality services and flexibility of choice against a backdrop of price sensitivity and online and offline competition.

The growth of comparison sites brings an opportunity for leisure and tourism providers but impacts all other areas of the business from IT to employment. Leisure and tourism providers are competing for disposable income in an ever tightening economic marketplace so well pitched advertising combined with perceived value for money is a key success factor. As well as this, tour operators and leisure providers have to meet constantly evolving health and safety and regulatory laws. At Watson Burton, we can help to ensure that your businesses core assets are fully protected and that the products and services you provide meet the necessary regulations.
