So much amazing activity took place all over Scotland as part of Scottish Tourism Month 2018.
Thank you to everyone who worked so hard to make these events happen, bringing people together to have these all important tourism conversations and provide platforms all over Scotland for new launches, announcements, discussion around the big issues for our tourism industry and of course sharing positive stories to inspire other tourism businesses.
Over 25 sectoral and destination events took place the length and breadth of Scotland, including the Scotland Food & Drink Annual Conference, EventIt, The Thistle Awards and the Destinations Conference. The STA Signature Conference was our biggest event to date, with just under 500 tickets sold; we brought some of the world’s leading speakers, entrepreneurs, tourism leaders and home grown talent together in our varied and inspirational programme and we even had a special address from Scotland’s First Minister, acknowledging that the success of our tourism industry "is testament to the hard work, expertise, and creativity of everybody working in our tourism industry."
This year, our comms team with the help of Confscribe who have partnered us to produce a special STA Conference edition of The Talker with links to presentations, and all the key takeaways summed up crisply and concisely of the STA Signature Conference.
