GCC B2B Approach

VisitBritain is the national tourism board for Great Britain with the remit to promote Britain to potential visitors in an appealing way. The travel trade plays an important role in influencing consumers choice of destination in the GCC; with the traditional travel agent still remaining popular, growing trends are towards online travel agents.

Our B2B strategy is to work with key intermediaries to:

  1. generate incremental value, in particular to London and rest of England, with a longer length of stay.
  2. to create itineraries suitable for the GCC market driving seasonality.
  3. to support Trade with the most relevant product and content available.
