Consumer Expectations: The Driving Force Behind Digital in Leisure

The UK's leisure sector is poised for a year of heightened activity as the weakness of the pound and the uncertainty of Brexit prompts Britons to spend more time and money on UK shores.

As the experience economy influences consumer expectations and services such as Netflix and Deliveroo continue to revolutionise the in-home leisure experience, out-of-home leisure operators are under increased pressure to expand their offering beyond the venue. To attract new customers and build brand loyalty, operators must offer unique experiences before, during and after the main event – and technology is the key to enabling this.

For consumers, technology is integral to their daily lives. If the attractions sector fails to identify the opportunity within the market and does not offer personalised, relevant and enhanced experiences, they’re at a high risk of underwhelming existing and prospective customers.

Providing a memorable customer experience can truly differentiate a business from its competitors. With this in mind, the sector has seen a dramatic shift in businesses becoming more customer-centric, increasing the need for advanced websites, mobile applications and the integration new technologies, such as virtual reality, to offer truly tailored, immersive services to the individual. Personalised experiences make the customer feel valued and will help to build meaningful long-term relationships, resulting in customers becoming more likely to buy services or products over time.

Join the breakfast event in London on 20 July to discuss the report with leaders in the leisure industry.
