Oct. 13, 2011 - PRLog -- At the recent Conservative party conference the Culture, Media and Sport Sec, Jeremy Hunt discussed the fact that the government will be using the Olympic Games to be held in London in 2012 as a way to dramatically boost and enhance the tourist industry in the UK. He said that this could be a pivotal point in time for the U.K.'s economy and it was important for everyone involved to embrace this and move forward in order to put tourism in the UK back on the map.

Jeremy was quoted as saying “We wanted to use the international profile that will have next year to transform our tourism industry”. Clearly this would be a huge benefit for the UK as tourism can bring in millions of tourists who will be boosting the country's economy, visiting hotels like those at which would welcome a boost.

It is thought that the 2012 Olympics could see an influx of 4 million tourists and these could be returning to the UK if there are enough tourism opportunities for them to enjoy. This could then create an extra 50,000 jobs in the UK which will further boost the economy. He then went on to say “Next year we need to send a message to the world, the Conservatives are back and Britain is back for business”

The Olympic Games in 2012 in London are already creating a big buzz among sporting fans all over the world and advance ticket sales are through the roof. In addition to having the income from these sales there are also the extra rooms that will be needed for people who are visiting from other parts of the country and other parts of the world which will add to the economy.

There are also the demands that will be placed on restaurants, bars and cafes during the course of the Olympics which will further increase the domestic economy. Even spas in the City like those at will get a big boost.
