Viewpoints on Christmas & Summer 2023

posted on

This survey was conducted in December 2023.

Key findings:

  • 65% say pre-Christmas functions / bookings are tracking worse than usual
  • 26% are trying different approaches to attract customers this year
  • 37% are feeling somewhat, or very optimistic about the Summer season

MEMBER FEEDBACK:

“Much quieter domestic or local trade as the cost of living crisis starts to bite, but this is most definitely being offset by a marked increase in international visitor trade.”

“People are not spending as much. Only going out for drink with the work function etc.”

“Definitely feel that businesses are not going to restaurants for their work Christmas functions, doing them in a cheaper way – like home BBQ’s.”
