SCOTO – Scottish Community Tourism National Gathering & Learning Exchange

29 February 2024, 9:00 am - 1 March 2024, 5:00 pm

Welcome to the much-anticipated return of the Scottish National Community Tourism Gathering!

Following the resounding success of last year’s event, hailed as the ‘friendliest’ conference by many attendees, we’re thrilled to announce that this year’s gathering is heading to the “Queen of the South”, Dumfries.

Meet us at the Cairndale Hotel, Dumfries where we’ll celebrate SCOTO Network’s mission to build skills, connections and confidence in people working in community-led tourism.

The theme of the conference this year is ‘Press Pause’ – we want communities to take time out to consider what is working, what isn’t working and how things could be done better/differently to ensure tourism helps make your community an even better place to live, work and visit.

Your participation is not just an event attendance but an opportunity to share insights, experiences and innovative ideas that can contribute and empower the SCOTO Network.

Whether you’re a community tourism activist or simply interested in knowing more about community led tourism in Scotland, this gathering is perfect for you.

Connect with like-minded individuals from across Scotland, share ideas, and discover new ways to develop and promote responsible tourism, which brings real benefits back into the host community.
