70TH ANNIVERSARY BUSINESS BRIEFING
4.30pm – 7.00pm Thursday 23th March 2017
The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo Office, 1 – 3 Cockburn Street
Festivals Edinburgh and ETAG invite you to a Business Briefing to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the birth of the world’s leading festival city and to learn more about the plans for making the most of this landmark year, which includes a range of promotional activity, special events and the launch of the new “Festivals Tourism Innovation Fund”.
The Edinburgh Festivals are distinctively Scottish and yet profoundly international, committed to capitalising on their enormous global value for the benefit of all. They attract audiences of over 4.5 million, putting them on a par with the Olympics and the FIFA World Cup – although of course the Festivals stay in Edinburgh and take place each year!
And of course, they not only generate massive direct visitor spend of over £313 million each year, while also ensuring that Edinburgh “Welcomes the World”, attracting visitors year round from over 70 countries and helping our city punch far above it’s weight as a global visitor destination.
We hope you can join us for a this free, informal & informative Business Briefing. The running order will be:
4.30 – Registration & Refreshments
5.15 – Presentations on the plans for the 70th Anniversary
5.30 – The launch of the new “Festivals Tourism Innovation Fund”
5.45 – Refreshments & Networking
7.00 – Close
ETAG maintains a 48hr cancellation policy. We are unable to offer refunds for bookings cancelled less than 48 hours prior to the event.
