VisitScotland is launching a new travel trade platform to help businesses from across North Ayrshire and Scotland connect with key buyers from around the globe.
Discover Scotland 2022 is a new event series, comprising an online business-to-business event with five regional showcases.
Discover Scotland: Reconnect 2022 will take place virtually on from 05 - 07 April 2022. The five regional showcases, known as Discover Scotland: Live Showcase, will then be held in May and September 2022.
Discover Scotland 2022 will also support VisitScotland’s commitment to make the country a leading destination for responsible tourism by showcasing new and existing sustainable tourism products directly to key international and UK buyers.
Malcolm Roughead, VisitScotland Chief Executive, said:
“We fully support the Scottish tourism industry and are committed to helping businesses recover from the COVID-19 pandemic by providing opportunities for them to network with tour operators and travel agents from all over the world, both online and on location.”
Kenneth Gibson MSP said:
“As we continue to live with the aftermath of the COVID-imposed lockdowns, this is a perfect opportunity for businesses to connect on an international level without having to physically travel.
“I encourage local businesses from across North Ayrshire to visit www.visitscotland.com/discoverscotland and register when it opens in November.”
In April 2022, VisitScotland anticipates virtual attendance from around 300 buyers from more than 20 markets and attendance by 300 Scottish suppliers.
