Visit Kent Business Barometer

Visit Kent's Business Barometer contains monthly feedback from tourism businesses on their performance and aims to give a simple 'snapshot' of how tourism is doing in Kent each month. Currently, around 50 attractions, 80 hotels using data from STR Global, 20 conference and event venues and 14 Visitor Information Centres submit their figures to Visit Kent.

To ensure that we continue to share an accurate picture, we are always looking to encourage more businesses to contribute. As it’s completely free to sign-up and to access monthly and previous reports, it has proven to be a useful and timely benchmarking tool for businesses.

To see an example of how the Visit Kent Business Barometer has been beneficial to a business, we spoke to Matthew Coates from English Heritage who submits data each month for a number of their properties.
