There is no doubt that 2020 was a terrible year for a lot of businesses as multiple start-ups and smaller businesses were unable to get up off the ground. Now, as vaccines continue to be rolled out, lockdown is lifted and COVID-19 cases remain reasonably steady, it is exciting to see us enter a new age where businesses have the potential to thrive. As such, it seems appropriate to produce a list of some of the most exciting businesses coming up in Wales that you should keep an eye out for.
This opened in 2013 and is an adventure tourism park located at Penrhyn Quarry in Bethesda. The site has 13 different adventures, all of which are spread over three different sites. The brand has really contributed to the Welsh economy over the years (£251 million to be exact) and has brought joy to numerous adventure seekers and adrenaline junkies since its opening.
The company is also opening a park in a former coal mine and given this is all happening following an elongated period of individuals not being able to fully go out or explore, the business will likely see a boom in footfall. Yes, in 2021, Zip World is definitely one to keep your eye out for.
The Casino Industry
As the pandemic rendered a lot of businesses closed, there had to be adaptation. For people who enjoyed going out to the casino and trying their luck on a roulette wheel, this adaptation came in the form of sites such as cinema casino. Already growing in popularity due to the fact they offer some of the best UK online casinos to their customers, these sites grew more and more as people were unable to leave their homes.
Now, as places reopen we are also likely to see a boom in the casino industry, though the popularity of the online sites will be undiminished because of their convenience. There are plenty to go to in Wales, so residents will likely take full advantage of restrictions being lifted.
This is an exciting business for any TV buffs out there, which let’s face it, following 18 months of not been able to go out and socialise is near enough everyone. New series such as A Discovery of Witches and His Dark Materials were produced by Bad Wolf and as such it is seeing staggering growth even in light of the pandemic.
This business was first established in 2015 by Jane Tranter and Julie Gardner, both of whom are former BBC executives. Since then, the business has seen massive growth, which is only likely to continue due to the fact the two aforementioned series will continue into new seasons. The company is also responsible for the production of the much loved I Hate Suzie, which recently aired on Sky One starring former Doctor Who star Billie Piper.
It is good to see that businesses are beginning to thrive again following restrictions being lifted. The above highlights are just some of the exciting ones to keep an eye out for in 2021 and 2022.
