Liverpool Hospitality, a non-profit organisation that represents the collective voice of Hospitality in Liverpool, has spoken out about the accommodation situation the city has found itself in following the confirmation of Liverpool as Eurovision 2023 host city.
Since the announcement on October 7th, that Liverpool would be hosting Eurovision 2023, many fans found themselves out of pocket as hotel and air bnb prices began to soar. Some people even found their bookings cancelled, only to re-appear back online at a much higher price than they booked it for.
Speaking out on their official Twitter page, Liverpool Hospitality have spoken out about the rise in accommodation costs, and have vowed to help the situation, as best they can.
Eurovision 2023 will be coming to Liverpool, making it the first time the Northern city will play host to the contest. They won the right to host next years contest, in place of Ukraine, after a bidding process which saw numerous cities across the country submitting their bids.
The EBU worked with the BBC and Suspline to find the right city for the job, and after a few weeks, it all came down to Glasgow versus Liverpool, with the latter taking the crown.
At the moment, accommodation prices for a large proportion of places within Liverpool are still very high, putting a lot of people off booking. But these prices look set to decrease in the coming months, as organisations such as Liverpool Hospitality work their magic.
