With the 2012 summer being one of the wettest on record, its impact on the tourism businesses in Norfolk and Suffolk make interesting reading. To see the results of our comprehensive survey of the 2012 year pleaseCLICK HERE.
With an early Easter and some less than favourable weather many tourism businesses had a slow start to the year. Better weather around the May bank holidays provided a boost to activity, and while the late spring/early summer was not bright and sunny, some businesses, but certainly not all, saw improved activity. July and August’s sunshine and the added heat brought a welcome change, but as always, it does not benefit everyone.
We are delighted be working closely with Visit Norfolk and Visit Suffolk, and on their behalf have just completed the survey for the quarter to 30 September 2013! To view the results, CLICK HERE.
As always, we respect the confidentiality of those businesses providing data for the survey. We do not publish the details of any individual participants to any organisation. If you would like clarification on this please see our confidentiality guarantee on this or alternatively please call me on 0845 4081732 or email email@example.com and I will be happy to discuss our policy with you.

It is so important for us to understand how our sector, our area and the county are doing as a whole. The Survey took just 14 minutes to complete and the information gained helps us to identify the big challenges and gives us the evidence to support our cause with local, regional and national government. It helps individual businesses to measure their performance against the market, giving us valuable management information.
Visit Norfolk Brand Manager
The annual Tourism Business Survey is an important barometer of how the industry feels about itself, it highlights the big issues and gives us crucial data to plan the way forward. Its effectiveness and usefulness to the sector is indisputable, and that’s why Visit Norfolk urges everyone to take part.
Visit Suffolk Brand Manager
The survey is a great opportunity for tourism businesses, large or small, to contribute their views on how well tourism is performing at a local and county level for Suffolk and how this informs the bigger picture for tourism nationally. All participants will receive a copy of the report which may assist them in future business decisions, while we will use the data to support regional decision making too.
General Manager, Holiday Inn – Norwich City
The survey took me approximately 15 minutes to complete and is a must for anybody in tourism if you wish to understand what is truly happening within our industry locally and throughout the region. The results are fascinating and give precise data about what we need from our DMO’s and our local and national government. It also shows you what your peers really think about 2012 and what 2013 holds for us all. Please don’t miss your opportunity to get involved.
Chief Executive Officer, Visit East Anglia
With our dynamic domestic tourism market in a constant state of change, never has it been more important to use sound market intelligence in order to support our business decision making. The 2013 Tourism Business Survey is a valuable resource to all businesses across East Anglia and I encourage all organisations to support it.

Over the years that we have been participating in the Tourism Business Survey it has proved valuable in assessing where we sit in the market place, how business confidence generally is and how the industry sees the forthcoming year. I am extremely pleased to see that Larking Gowen are also extending this independent survey into Suffolk this year as this has been something the county has been missing. Timed to coincide with the start of the season, the survey allows businesses the opportunity to ensure they can focus on what really matters.
