Meet the team

We may be a small country but Scotland has always punched above its weight and this is never more important than in these challenging times for the conference and events industry.

The contribution that business tourism makes to the Scottish economy is £809 million and the industry itself is investing millions in new venues and upgraded facilities. VisitScotland’s Business Tourism Unit (BTU) is comprehensively marketing the country to ensure that Scotland is top of the list for holding conferences and events from the UK and abroad.

Think of this blog as a little window into the work that we do – the events and trips that we create to showcase Scotland, and if we can’t bring meeting planners to our country, then we take a piece of Scotland to them at the many exhibitions we attend around the world or closer to home at our Scotland on Tour events.  From time to time we will also invite some of our highly talented Scottish partners to guest blog to give you an even greater insight into why you should take a closer look at the venues and activities going on in Scotland.

Of course, we are always keen to hear your thoughts and suggestions so please do add your comment to our posts. Thank you for visiting our blog!
