The London Resort has launched a register of interest for businesses that want to become suppliers. Companies are set to benefit from £50 billion of gross economic activity generated in the UK over the initial 25 years.
According to a report on the economic distribution of Disneyland Paris, the park added €68 billion to the French economy in its first 25 years, with the region benefitting €22.4 billion.
Independent analysis estimates that 6.5 million guests will visit the London Resort in 2025, increasing to 12.5 million visitors by 2038. This means the destination would rank as the biggest theme park in Europe, ahead of Disneyland Paris.
“The London Resort is a fantastic opportunity for small businesses in the Southeast,” said Tim Aker, development manager for the Kent and Medway Federation of Small Businesses (FSB)

Aker added: “This is a chance for SMEs to be part of the supply chain and take advantage of the economic benefits this project will bring to the region.
“At a time when the country needs investment, this will have positive effects on the local and wider economy. We encourage SMEs to register and see what part they can play in this exciting development.”
There are opportunities for local, regional and national businesses. Businesses interested in being part of the London Resort’s supply chain should register their interest here.
“Businesses of all shapes and sizes have a critical role to play in this unique project,” said Andy Martin, strategy and communications director for the London Resort.
Local, regional and national businesses
“The register of interest will help us understand more about the type and size of businesses that are interested in becoming a supplier,” he added. “To date about 13,500 people and businesses have signed-up for project updates.
“If a business has provided details before though, we are asking them to complete the new register of interest form to ensure we have the most up-to-date details about their business and operations.”
48,000 direct, indirect and induced jobs will be be created by the London Resort by 2038.
