This fully funded event is specifically for tourism businesses in the East Midlands to provide information and advice on how to prepare for 2021 and the UK exit from the EU takes place at The Golf Hotel, Woodhall Spa from 09.00 for 09.30 until midday.
As the United Kingdom moves into negotiations to agree our future trading relationship with the EU there are a number of key issues on the table that will impact upon the future of the tourism sector - including freedom of movement, labour, data protection and GDPR and aviation agreements to name but a few. As the industry relies heavily on staff from the EU, who make up to a quarter of the workforce, and visitors, who account for over 67% of tourists those coming to the UK each year, it is vital that businesses in the sector start preparing now to run their business outside of the EU to minimise the impact of our exit.
The session will start with a keynote address from Neil Warwick OBE, one of the UK’s top EU and Competition lawyers and expert on our exit from the EU, exploring the key issues of our exit from the EU that will impact upon tourism businesses, and how to best to prepare now for the coming change.
Come along for practical suggestions and tips on how to ensure your organisation is well and truly prepared for business after our exit from the EU , Neil will provide a unique insight on how our Exit from the EU will affect your business in the near future, and how it can be surprisingly easily to mitigate against some of the impact:
• You will hear first-hand the very latest political and business insights from the UK government and understand how they will impact on organisations across the East Midlands in the tourism sector
• Get an insight into the latest intelligence on leaving the EU and what the skeleton deal that is emerging might mean for your business and what support your business can receive across 2020 to ensure you are prepared

The session will then move onto an interactive question and answer session, with signposting to further sources of advice, guidance and support.
