  10. Tourism campaign brings in '£70m to London economy'

    Tourism in London

    The mayor of London's Let’s Do London campaign has brought in an estimated £70m to London’s economy over the summer, City Hall figures suggest.

    The £6m campaign was seen by 280,000 tourists who ended up taking a trip to London, according to polling carried out for the mayor.

    Described at its launch as the “biggest domestic tourism campaign” London has ever seen, the City Hall initiative was designed to attract visitors back to London.

    Speaking at City Hall on Wednesday, Allen Simpson, acting chief executive of London’s investment, trade and promotional agency London and Partners, said the scheme "had a roughly £70m impact on the tourism sector in terms of increased spend".

    Mr Simpson said: “The Let’s Do London campaign has, I think, been very necessary and very effective."

    Polling had identified how many people were aware of the Let’s Do London campaign ahead of their visits to the capital, Mr Simpson said.

    The £70m was calculated by multiplying the number of people who said they visited London because of the campaign by the average length of stay – 2.3 days – and the average daily spend – £107.

    Further events under the Let’s Do London campaign are planned over the remainder of the autumn and winter months, including lights displays and festive themed fun.
