Regional eUpdate - July 2016


These last few months have seen the past, present and future of innovation explored at the Glasgow Science Festival,  the official launch of Scotland’s oldest new building, the Botanic Cottage and multi-coloured Oor Wullies donning the streets of Dundee; all in the name of the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design 2016.

The Themed Years were created to deliver impact for Scotland, and they are certainly doing just that.  They encourage us all to collaborate in order to attract new customers and generate benefits for the visitor economy.

It’s not too late to get involved, take a look at our toolkit and download the logo to use across your marketing.


It's also time to start looking ahead to the Year of History, Heritage & Archaeology 2017, when we celebrate Scotland’s tangible and intangible heritage; from our buildings, visitor attractions and archaeological sites to our diverse stories, traditions and culture.  There is funding available and support to help your marketing.  Read more in this month’s eUpdate.

Kind regards
Malcolm Roughead, OBE
Chief Executive, VisitScotland
