Calling UK Creative Industries! Experience UK launches Anonymised Export Survey

Experience UK, the premier trade body which represents operators and suppliers of global visitor attractions, has launched their annual Anonymised Export Survey. The Survey has been designed to provide concrete evidence of the nation’s Experience Economy sector collective domestic and export value to the UK economy, and the costs to generate it.

The Survey is exclusive for UK museum and attraction operators, along with UK companies who supply for visitor destinations globally. Participants will be asked a range of business related questions – including the regions’ they’re currently trading with, their priority markets for the forthcoming year and their exporting turnover across 2020/21.

The Survey will provide Experience UK with high impact statistics which will give the lobbying power to raise the profile and communication of the Experience Economy within UK government.  In turn, this will allow Experience UK to make a compelling case to DIT to find new, innovative and effective ways to support UK companies garner business on a global scale.

All data gathered from the Survey will be anonymised, aggregated, and analysed, before being published into Experience UK’s Annual Report. The data will also be compiled with export trade figures from other creative industry sectors - including publishing, architecture, music, fashion, gaming, and more.

The survey should take participants 10 minutes to complete, and is available here: Experience UK Anonymised Export Survey (

The Experience UK Anonymised Export survey will expire towards the end of April, 2022.

Waterparks: Riding a Recovery Wave

After two years of pandemic concerns that saw many waterparks remain closed throughout 2020 and suffer continued disruption in 2021, 2022 is anticipated to be a pivot back to normal for the industry. As vaccines are now widely available and COVID becomes endemic, waterparks are poised to capitalize on pent-up demand and return to pre-COVID performance levels. While 2021 saw robust growth in pricing at many properties, 2022 will see the industry open a number of expansions and new developments. Several large-scale projects will alter the waterpark landscape at both indoor and outdoor waterparks and continue to encourage properties to innovate and update to keep market share. A number of larger developments are planned for 2023 and beyond at waterparks and surf parks throughout North America.
