Our economic projections 2012 - 2016

YTB Market Intelligence were commissioned by us to produce a model capable of estimating the likely economic impact of the National Railway Museum to the tourism economy of York following completion of a multi-million pound redevelopment and improvement works.

The aims of the research were to estimate the:

  • Proportion of total visitor expenditure directly attributable to the National Railway Museum (i.e. amount of spend the museum is responsible for generating).
  • Amount of additional spend likely to be generated by visitors to the museum following the re-development works, and associated external effects, including increased supplier and income multiplier spend.
  • Number of full time jobs supported by the additional spend, including direct, indirect and induced employment effects.
  • Overall impact of re-development works at the National Railway Museum on both the local and regional tourism economy.
