STEAM - The Economic Impact Report

STEAM is a tourism economic impact modelling process which enables us to measure tourism using local data, tourism performance and visitor survey data. We complete the report each year and the results allow Northumberland Tourism and Northumberland County Council to monitor the impact of tourism across Northumberland.

The research that we gain from the report allows us to establish the impact of our activity and helps us to develop and grow.

10.3 million people visited Northumberland in 2017. This was up by 6% on 2016.

 Each year we embark on the mammoth task that is reviewing and updating our records, to ensure that the report is as accurate as possible. All accommodation providers in Northumberland (that we are aware of) are listed in our system; we update the report on a yearly basis to reflect any changes in pricing and bedstock as well as closures of properties and new accommodation providers in the county.
