These figures demonstrate that the accessible market is a growing and lucrative one. In order to take advantage of this, VisitScotland is encouraging businesses to adopt a few simple measures.
With Scotland taking centre stage in 2014, it's important that we provide a warm welcome to all of our guests; including those with access requirements.
Accessibility issues aren’t limited to visitors with permanent physical disabilities. They also apply to those with mental health conditions, parents with small children, senior travellers, and people with temporary injuries - as well as their travel companions.
To help the tourism industry to prepare for the exciting opportunities ahead, VisitScotland is running an Accessible Tourism Conference.
The conference, which will take place on 12 March 2013 at the EICC in Edinburgh, is one of the key events on the programme for Scottish Tourism Week.
Presentations will be delivered by high profile figures including VisitScotland Chairman, Mike Cantlay, David Grevemberg, Chief Executive of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014, and Shona Robison, MSP, Minister for Minister for Commonwealth Games and Sport.
Lunch will be followed by workshops on a range of aspects of accessible tourism including customer care, best practice and a series of case studies.
The EICC is right in the centre of Edinburgh. The main entrance is on Morrison Street. For more information on the EICC and its accessibility please visit their website www.eicc.co.uk/about/accessibility.
