Regional eUpdate – January 2016


2016 has seen us welcome the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design - a world first - and with that a host of new ideas and events within Scottish tourism and even more reasons to celebrate our dynamic and inspirational industry.

Ours is an industry all about people and it is the people of Scotland that make the ultimate difference with our warmth, passion and spirit. From textiles to technology, architecture to fashion and design, the Year will shine the spotlight on our greatest assets and icons, as well as our hidden gems.

This is tourism’s opportunity to showcase Scotland’s traditional and contemporary icons and our cutting-edge design to the world.  This theme gives Scotland the perfect stage to pay tribute to past, present and future inventors, engineers and architects – and many other professions. Take a look at how you can take advantage of the year

I look forward to continuing to work with you in 2016. Enjoy this month’s eUpdate.

Kind regards,
Malcolm Roughead, OBE,
Chief Executive, VisitScotland
