Coventry Visitor Information Provision

Research tells us the most impactful moments of visits to a destination happen in the first and last hour. This project provides two striking visitor information points at our primary transport gateways - Coventry Rail Station and Pool Meadow Coach Station - essential for welcoming the 2.5m visitors anticipated during our 2021 City of Culture year, as well as Commonwealth Games visitors in 2022 and a lasting-legacy beyond. Importantly, the services will support tourism and hospitality businesses, bolstering growth of the visitor economy. Attraction signposting, journey planning and facilitated bookings will result in longer stays, increased spend, an enhanced visitor experience and, ultimately, more jobs in the tourism sector.
