25 years of excellence | have you been involved?

Well, what a week we have just had. During Scottish tourism month it’s been heart-warming to see so many businesses across the industry demonstrating real #ScotSpirit by helping provide shelter, food and assistance to visitors. As the snow thaws let’s hope that spring is truly in sight.

Focus can now turn to the national final of the Scottish Thistle Awards on 15 March which lets us recognise the unsung heroes of our industry who show real dedication and enthusiasm for Scotland’s tourism industry.

This year the awards turn 25 and there have been 351 winners since it began. There were only six categories in the very first awards ceremony and this year we have 15 with 70 businesses in the running to be crowned winners. It’s fantastic that during our silver anniversary we saw a record-breaking 750 entries submitted to the awards, including hundreds of nominations from members of the public.

The Scottish Thistle Awards are Scotland’s premier awards for the tourism industry and for 25 wonderful years they have been shining a spotlight on success, innovation and excellence. Good luck to everyone up for an award and huge congratulations on getting this far.

Enjoy this month’s Tourism Insider.

Regional eUpdate - December 2016

15/12/2016

What a year 2016 has been, it started with the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design – a Theme Year that has captured the imagination of not only consumers but the industry too.  Events and activity have lived up to the Year's name.

We also launched our Spirit of Scotland campaign.  We’ve been selling Scotland with Scotland and extending our reach by working with the tourism industry and the people of Scotland - or those who just love Scotland - to promote our fantastic country in new and exciting ways.  The results are in and guess what?   #ScotSpirit is everywhere. Read the report.

Finally, we have seen the launch of the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology 2017. Scotland is the land where great legends were made throughout history, and so it’s only apt that we should have such unique events and activities lined-up to celebrate the year.  We know for a fact that visitors come to Scotland to experience our history and heritage and look forward to welcoming them in the coming year – and beyond.

I do hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a very prosperous New Year. Enjoy this month’s eUpdate.
