To finish your ETAG day out with something a little bit different, join the Hidden Trax team at 5pm on a tailored adventure – led by one of their Creators. Showing off the kind of hidden gems featured across their podcasts and audio tours, this event will last approximately an hour.


Currently available via the Hidden Trax iOS app, on their Spotify channel and through Apple Podcasts, Hidden Trax is based on a simple premise: explore the city through the eyes of a local, on your terms. All you need are some headphones and you're set!

We're delighted to be welcoming back some of the award-winning event-tech innovations from last year's conference and will have a new brand-new afternoon format at the 360° Imaginex screening room at Yotel Edinburgh.

You can see what last year’s attendees thought !

We look forward to seeing you!


Rising Star Tickets

As a legacy of the 2018 Year of Young People, we are delighted to continue to offer our special discount ticket to give businesses the opportunity to bring along a young “Rising Star” to the Conference for the discount price of only £20.

Attracting, nurturing and retaining talented young people in the tourism industry is key to the sector’s continued success and growth. Their energy, enthusiasm and insights help to drive innovation and ensure that the visitor experiences we offer are relevant and attractive to the increasingly important youth travel market.

We hope that this offer will provide you with the opportunity to bring along a younger member of staff who may not normally attend the ETAG Digital Solutions for Tourism Conference.

We have a limited number of places available on a “first come, first served” basis and some conditions do apply:

  • Places are available for youth delegates accompanying at least one full paying delegate booking
  • Only one youth delegate per business can be registered

For the purposes of this offer, a youth delegate must be 26 or under
