News: Scottish Tourism Alliance Autumn Conference – get your discounted ticket before Early Bird offer ends

Posted on 9 July 2019

The line-up for this year’s Scottish Tourism Alliance Annual Autumn Conference on 7th October at the EICC has been announced and if you’re quick off the mark, you’ll get a discount on your ticket with the Early Bird ticket offer.

This year’s event has a packed programme, starting with an interview with Fiona Hyslop MSP, Cabinet Secretary for Culture, Tourism and External Affairs.  Delegates will then hear the most up to date economic outlook for the tourism industry from one of the UK’s leading financial and economic experts, Philip Bartlett, Economist at RBS Group.

We will then hear from Stephen Leckie in his capacity as Chair of the Tourism Leadership Group who will provide an update on our national Tourism Strategy TS2020 with one year left to go.  Stephen will then do the ‘big reveal’ of the future Vision and Mission of our Tourism Strategy Beyond 2020 and will outline the priority areas of focus. 

Tourism is of course all about people, and in the final session before lunch titled ‘A Human Future’ you’ll hear four different perspectives on how we can build a stronger industry for the future through our people.

Afternoon sessions will explore topics such as improving mental health within the industry; future-proofing tourism with learnings from Glasgow’s circular economy; growing profit through data and how we can deliver better quality experiences through collaboration in our destinations.

There are a number of networking opportunities throughout the day and delegates are also invited to stay on after conference for a networking and G & Tea experience (sampling the new Scottish Tourism Alliance gin!).

Don’t miss the opportunity to get ahead of the curve at one of the most crucial times for our industry. The Early Bird offer ends on 31 July so make sure you grab your discounted ticket before they fly.
