Event Details

Did you know that over 32% of visitors to Scotland cite ‘history and culture’ as a key motivator for their trip, second only to ‘scenery and landscape’ (49%)?

From World Heritage Sites to ancient monuments, listed buildings to historic battlefields, cultural traditions to our myths, stories and legends, the year-long programme for 2017 will shine a spotlight on Scotland’s fascinating past, some of our greatest figures, attractions and icons, as well as our hidden gems. With themes that touch so many aspects of our lives, businesses and events of all shapes and sizes have the opportunity to get involved.

We invite you to join us at the official industry conference for the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.
Join us from 2.00pm - 4.30pm on Wednesday 5 October at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall. Registration will be open from 1.30pm.

Following refreshments, this free afternoon event will get you thinking about the exciting opportunities lined up for 2017, as well as providing a unique platform for knowledge exchange.

Speakers include: Lord Thurso, Chairman, VisitScotland

As well as an engaging line-up of speakers, come along for business insights, networking and generate ideas about how you can get involved in this winning year.

Come and make history with us! Register now at the Eventbrite website.
Places are limited and registration is on a first come, first served basis.

You also have the opportunity to sign up for the Scottish Tourism Alliance AGM and Autumn Conference, which will take place directly before this event from 9am at the same venue.
