Travel, Leisure and Hospitality

After a few years of recession during the economic crisis, the Travel, Leisure and Hospitality sector has had a substantial growth in recent years, due to consumers’s rising spending power and the easing in household disposable incomes. In addition, the current consumer trend of spending more in experiences could give a boost to the sector. Key trends in the market are:

  • Although affected by the increase of terrorism in Europe, the UK’s Travel, Leisure and hospitality sector has observed a solid growth for the past 2 years and the future is looking as bright for 2017
  • The local deal market in the sector has flourished in recent years with 20 deals completed in the Travel, Leisure and Hospitality sector including the investment in The Light Cinemas by Connection Capital, the acquisition of Anite Travel by LDC and the MBI of Minoan Group
  • The increasing number of digitally active consumers on social media is likely to give a boost to the sector in the future
