    16. UK-USA Outlook 2009 • Confused situation but some decline likely - outlook still unclear • Reluctance to commit to expenditure • But main holidays still high priority • Short break / discretionary travel at risk • Likely to see shorter booking lead times • £ decline against $ less than £ against the Euro • UK will still be the biggest overseas travel market to the USA – by a fairly large margin • UK-USA leisure travel more than 5 times bigger than India & China combined !

    17. The Impact of President Obama • Positive • Differentiates and helps create a good US market backdrop • Increases USA awareness • However will only generate limited specific travel demand e.g Chicago

    18. Long Term Impact of Current Downturn ? • Historically all depressions reverse over time • How long this will take – still unknown – UK’s may take longer than USA • Not all market sectors affected equally • Some market shift inevitable & will change targets • Over time should balance out

    19. Promotion of USA Shopping, Dining & Cultural Travel • UK figures clear - Biggest spenders on dining & shopping - Sightseeing & Culture important • Make it easy & available for them - Packages - Websites • Communicate - UK representation - Work with UK tour operators - Consider reciprocal deals with UK shopping companies
