Regional eUpdate - June 2014


With only four weeks to go until the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, excitement is growing for what promises to be a spectacular showcase of Scotland’s tourism icons, our world-class events prowess and our renowned hospitality.

After more than eight months on the road, the Glasgow 2014 Queen’s Baton Relay crossed the border into Scotland recently for its 40 day tour of the country and there have been fantastic images of its journey so far. 

At the Games itself, VisitScotland will be a partner in a destination media centre located in St Enoch’s Square to ensure that we showcase Scotland and Glasgow to the world and we’ll be running a series of business events in addition to hosting Scotland’s medallists at Scotland House located in the centre of Glasgow.

With a whole series of momentous events happening throughout this year, this is Scotland’s chance to excel. There are still some things your business can do to make the most of the opportunity; read more within your eUpdate.

2014 is undoubtedly the springboard for economic success in 2015 and beyond, giving a taste of what is possible – let’s ensure we are ready for it.

Kind regards
Malcolm Roughead, OBE,
Chief Executive, VisitScotland
