Regional eUpdate - August 2014


What a summer it is turning out to be!  We have shown everyone that we have the facilities, the skills and most importantly the people to put on one of the biggest sporting events in the world with the successful delivery of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and, of course, the greatest cultural festival anywhere which is coming to an end in Edinburgh.

Although these two great events will soon be behind us, there are still plenty more brilliant moments to come, whether that be one of the remaining 300 Homecoming events being held across the country or, of course, the 2014 Ryder Cup being held next month at Gleneagles.

The Ryder Cup Concert is the curtain raiser for Scotland to truly ‘Welcome the World’ at the start of the Ryder Cup and will set the tone for the rest of the event week. It’s a one-off concert, marking the celebration of one of the biggest sport billings in the world and features an unmissable evening of entertainment. For details of the programme or indeed how to buy tickets and be part of this once in a lifetime extravaganza read this month's story.

The 2014 Ryder Cup will enhance and showcase Scotland as the ’Home of Golf’, and with its broadcast  reach of a staggering 183 countries across the world, it will inspire a generation.

2014 is certainly proving to be a catalyst for Scottish tourism growth - now we all need to build on the success of this year.

Kind regards
Malcolm Roughead OBE,

Chief Executive, VisitScotland
