ETAG is the umbrella organisation for the tourism sector in Edinburgh. Our aim is to create a strong tourism community that works together to deliver sustainable growth for your business, a great experience for the visitor and economic benefits for the city and Scotland as a whole.
We have an online network of over 1,500 tourism professionals, businesses and organisations who receive regular updates on the latest information, events and business opportunities in Edinburgh. It’s free, so why not Join our mailing list to keep up to date.
The ETAG Full Group, made up of representatives from the major stakeholders, agencies and industry groups from across Edinburgh’s tourism sector, meets around 12 times a year to discuss the key challenges, opportunities and strategic issues for tourism in the city.
ETAG’s activity focuses on 3 main areas:
Market Intelligence – keeping businesses up to date with the latest news, business opportunities, visitor intelligence and insights into new developments in the city. Check out our market info section of the website.
Business Development – delivering a range of events, ranging from short, snappy Business Briefings to hands on training in new technology and social media and innovation workshops. Have a look at our events and training pages.
