First meeting of The Kinross-shire Tourism Forum Wednesday 23 November 2011 – Windlestrae Hotel 6.00pm
The Kinross-shire Partnership has been asked to facilitate the re-establishment of a tourism group in Kinross-shire given that one of the main objectives of the Partnership is ‘to identify, promote and encourage opportunities of economic and tourist development in Kinross-shire’.
An initial meeting is set for Wednesday 23 November at 6.00pm. The Montgomery Hotel Group has kindly agreed to host the first meeting in The Windlestrae Hotel. We hope that as many people as possible who either own or work in a tourism business or just have an interest in promoting tourism in Kinross-shire will attend. The purpose of the first meeting is to establish the levels of interest in such a group and what the aims and objectives should be.
We have invited representatives from Visit Scotland, Blairgowrie & East Perthshire Tourist Association (BEPTA) and Highland Perthshire Destination Management Organisation to give advice and to share best practices. It is worth looking at the following web-sites to see what can be achieved by local tourism groups http://www.bepta.com and http://www.highlandperthshire.org.uk.
If all the tourism businesses work together we can successfully promote the area to a wide audience both at home and abroad. Kinross-shire is an area of outstanding natural beauty and wildlife. We need to make sure that all visitors know what Kinross-shire has to offer.
To register interest in attending the first meeting or to find out more contact Fiona Craigon, Director, Kinross-shire Partnership on 01577 865 679 or firstname.lastname@example.org
