Talking about making the most of the opportunities for staycations
For this episode we’re talking through research results from a recent survey we produced in collaboration with market research agency, Savanta. The survey focuses on consumer expectations for staycations and the opportunities you can capitalise on, for what is set to be a boom in the UK tourism market.
As well as that, we’ll also talk through what the market has in store for us through this summer and onwards.
To help digest this, regular host Joe Angliss is joined by David King who is our Senior Customer Marketing Manager and Jonny Sim, who is a Campaign and Activation Manager at Bidfood.
