Hundreds of the world’s top tourism companies have just discovered why Argyll and the Isles is one of the country’s top tourist destinations.
Scotland’s premier tourism event – the two-day VisitScotland expo – finished on Thursday, April 3, and one of the show’s hottest stands proved to be Argyll and the Isles Tourism Co-operative’s (AITC) exhibition.
Chief executive of Mount Stuart Trust and chair of AITC, Connie Lovel, said: “This is the third year running that we have had space at the show, and the feedback just keeps getting better and better.
“Our stand showcased some of the very best of Argyll and the Isles, so it’s not surprising that it generated a great deal of interest. I may well be biased, but I think it would be difficult not to be hugely impressed with the range and quality of attractions this wonderful region boasts.
“Of course, nothing can compare to actually visiting Argyll and the Isles and seeing all these various attractions first-hand, and buyers are aware of that. I’m confident that we made a big enough impression on many of the VisitScotland expo visitors so that they’ll make sure Argyll and the Isles is on their agenda in the future, even if they’ve somehow managed to overlook it in the past.”
Nearly 1,000 companies from the UK and around the world descended on Glasgow’s SECC to view the cream of what Scotland’s tourism sector has to offer.
