Abstract

The use of data-driven business analytic models has had a significant impact on several sectors of the economy. In the UK, the tourism industry has contributed significantly to the economy. The contribution of tourism to the UK economy is estimated to be £145.9 billion (7.2%) of UK GDP. Regardless of its economic value, tourism is also one of the most vulnerable sectors, as it is susceptible to natural disasters, civil unrest, crisis, and pandemics, all of which can fully shut down the industry. Hence, an accurate and reliable tourism demand forecast is important. Apart from COVID-19, no other occurrence in modern history has had such a broad impact on the economy, industries, everyone and businesses in the world (Galvani et al., 2020). However, with the impact of COVID19 on the industry, it is imperative to reassess potential recovery plans for the UK economy, particularly for local tourism businesses. Macroeconomic data is collected over many source markets for the UK and a machine learning algorithm is tested to assess the future of the industry.
