  • This event has passed.

Why should you be interested in the Accessible Tourism market? Well… we’ll tell you why:

  • In 2013 the Accessible Tourism market was worth approximately £1.5 billion to the Scottish Economy
  • Businesses are calculated to be losing up to £212 billion a year or £1.8 billion a month by not engaging with disabled customers (Extra Costs Commission)
  • In October 2016 Edinburgh will host the International Rehabilitation Congress at the EICC, attracting over 1000 international delegates, many of whom will have access requirements. This global conference gives Edinburgh a real opportunity to showcase how ‘accessible’ we are as a destination. How ready are you to give them a traditional Scottish welcome.

Come along to hear more about the accessible tourism market, and how to create your own access statement.
