Event description

Description

This event is kindly sponsored by Calmac.


Destinations, towns and cities are identified one of five key assets of Scottish tourism in the national tourism strategy, Tourism Scotland 2020. There are over 30 destination organisations in Scotland, all of whom are working hard to strengthen and grow the sector and the visitor experience in their areas, through the implementation of their own destination plans, linked to the national strategy.

This event is aimed specifically at destination leaders, such officers, Board or committee members of destination groups, destination managers in public agencies and Local Authorities and others who are active in supporting their destination activities. The event provides an opportunity for these professionals to come together to share ideas and best practice around destination development and marketing in Scotland.
