Chinese New Year 2018

Chinese New Year has become a key moment in the calendars of retailers, hoteliers and leisure companies in the West End as Chinese tourist numbers have seen a sharp increase over the last few years.

New West End Company predictions for how this would impact the West End were covered in several news outlets including City AM, Retail Gazette and London Evening Standard.

Head of Insights Kyle Monk was interviewed by Chinese TV channel Phoenix TV regarding this increase. He highlighted that one of the reasons London has seen an increase in Chinese visitors is due to the work New West End Company has done to improve the visa process for Chinese visitors.
