VisitScotland and Dumfries & Galloway Council invite you to attend this year’s Dumfries & Galloway tourism conference on Tuesday 26 April 2016 at Easterbrook Hall in Dumfries.

The event will welcome Alan Rankin from Coigach Consulting to present the region’s tourism strategy, and Ian Bell from Crawick Multiverse will tell the story so far following the launch of this new and exciting visitor attraction. Mark Turner and Lesley Watson of Solway Tours will also give some insights into how their business has quickly become the only VisitScotland five-star rated tour operator in Dumfries & Galloway. Manuela Calchini, VisitScotland’s Regional Partnerships Director for the South of Scotland will also share some exciting details and successes of the new Spirit of Scotland global campaign which launched earlier this year, including Dumfries & Galloway’s starring role in the global TV advert.

In addition to the learning opportunity delivered by these inspirational speakers, attendees will have the chance to catch up with new and existing colleagues during a facilitated networking session, as well as visiting a range of partner stands and enjoying a networking lunch.
