Description

Join us on the 6th June at The Falkirk Wheel for our next Visit Falkirk Tourism Networking event.

A great way to meet other tourism businesses in the area and to find out about the work being carried out locally to continue to raise the profile of the Falkirk area as a national and international tourist destination.

This event is for any business in the Falkirk area with a specific role or interest in the growing Tourism Sector. The aim of these events is to bring tourism businesses from throughout the Falkirk area together to encourage networking, joint working and to increase awareness of the fastest growing sector in this area.

We are delighted that this event will mark the official launch of the Visit Falkirk Partnership, an industry grouping that has come together to work with Falkirk Council/Falkirk Delivers and Visit Scotland.

They will also work closely with Falkirk Council, to help review and deliver the Tourism Strategy for the Falkirk area.
