Are you among the busi­ness own­ers to have seen a dra­mat­ic fall in the demand of local and inter­na­tion­al trav­ellers as a result of the pan­dem­ic? Have you been forced to make changes to your ser­vices or tem­porar­i­ly close your busi­ness in a bid to lim­it costs?

Well, you’re far from alone, with tourism-focused busi­ness­es across the UK con­tin­u­ing to count the costs of the trav­el restric­tions and social dis­tanc­ing measures.

But all is far from lost. There are promis­ing signs of a return to nor­mal­i­ty, with Vis­it Britain pre­dict­ing the val­ue of domes­tic tourism spend­ing to be £61.7bn in 2021. This rep­re­sents a year-on-year increase of 79%, with an expect­ed surge in demand for overnight accom­mo­da­tion and spend­ing on leisure trips.

Now is the time to lay the foun­da­tions for the renewed suc­cess of your tourism business.

Local author­i­ties across the UK are offer­ing grants to aid the expan­sion of local busi­ness­es and kick-start the econ­o­my. One such local author­i­ty – Lin­colnshire Coun­ty Coun­cil is set to offer grants for those busi­ness­es who haven’t received finan­cial sup­port from the gov­ern­ment since the onset of the pan­dem­ic. Vouch­ers to the val­ue of between £1,000 and £5,000 are also to be offered for local busi­ness­es look­ing to build new web­sites, ecom­merce plat­forms, con­tact­less pay­ments and soft­ware devel­op­ment to sup­port the digi­ti­sa­tion of your busi­ness. More details on how and when to qual­i­fy for the Lin­colnshire Coun­ty Coun­cil fund­ing can be found here. The fund­ing is also avail­able to pro­vide a con­tri­bu­tion to a larg­er project where the appli­cant is able to pay the remain­ing costs of over £5,000.

As your trust­ed dig­i­tal part­ners, Han­abi can help with every­thing from the prepa­ra­tion of a pro­pos­al for your fund­ing appli­ca­tions to the devel­op­ment of tourist-focused websites.
