Unlock the Purple Pound

April 2018

When everyone is welcome, anything is possible.

Living in a diverse society, the business that caters for the needs of as many customers possible will be the one most likely not only to survive but to flourish.

The total inclusive tourism market is worth over £12bn1. Research shows businesses can potentially benefit from longer stays and more spend from the group where a member of the party has a disability. Watch the animation and get inspired on unlocking the purple pound.
