Tay Cities Regional Tourism StrategyGillian Black
Tourism businesses from across the region are being invited to help shape the first Tay Cities Regional Tourism Strategy for Angus, Dundee, Fife and Perth & Kinross.
In recent years, the four local authorities have worked together in order to encourage visitors to increase their stay time in the region, and to explore it more widely while they are here. The opening of the V&A Dundee has brought the spotlight onto to this part of Scotland and with other recent and planned developments there is a real opportunity to take a more coordinated and collaborative approach to growing the value of the visitor economy in the region and its constituent areas.
As visits to Scotland (and this region in particular) increase, we aim to create a strategy that will set out a common vision, and a plan for growth that will enable the region to achieve its full potential, as well as becoming aligned with the National Tourism Strategy, Tourism Scotland 2020.
This is an opportunity for industry to share their views, thoughts and ideas to develop the future approach to tourism development in the region and identify what will help tourism in the Tay Cities region meet its full potential over the next five years.
The workshops will provide an opportunity to contribute to this new strategy, highlight the areas to be addressed and the opportunities for growing visitor spend and overnight stays across the whole of the region.
Four workshops will be held across the region, providing an opportunity to meet businesses from each area. The workshops are free of charge and open to one representative per company/organisation.
