We are pleased to announce keynote speaker Tom Campbell, Managing Director, North Coast 500
Tom will be talking about what has made the North Coast 500 the number one touring route in the world with an initial audience reach of almost 2 billion and what National Geographic Traveller ranked as the number two reason to travel. It’s not about sticking a number after a place name, it is about the product, the appeal, the diversity and ultimately about the experience

Accessible Tourism Business Briefing | Hilton Coylumbridge Hotel | 28th September 2016

Supported by Cairngorms National Park Authority and part of Highland Business Week 2016

Accessible Tourism presents a largely untapped and growing market for Scotland’s tourism industry contributing £1.3 billion to Scotland’s economy in 2015.  The market includes a wide range of visitors, from people with sensory and physical disabilities to families with young children and senior travellers.  Recent analysis of the European accessible market size predicts the value of the market to reach 88.6 billion Euros by 2025, a 65% growth rate.  The aim of the VisitScotland Accessible Tourism Programme is to work in partnership with the tourism industry to make Scotland one of the most accessible tourism destinations in Europe and help tourism businesses to tap into this market.

This session was aimed at giving you the information you need to capitalise on this potential market opportunity.
