UKinbound has confirmed Scotland will host, for the first time in more than a decade, the organisation’s annual convention in 2016.
The event will be staged from 10-12 February at Macdonald Aviemore Resort, one of the trade association’s Platinum Corporate partners.
Following on from the success of this year’s annual convention held in Leicester, Macdonald Aviemore Resort will welcome more than 250 UKinbound members for two days of debates, plenary sessions with keynote speakers, networking opportunities including a major B2B workshop and a black-tie Gala Dinner, at which the Association’s annual Awards for Excellence will be announced.
UKinbound’s chief executive officer, Deirdre Wells OBE said: “We are delighted to announce Macdonald Aviemore Resort as the host for our Annual Convention next year.
“So far, it has been a year of significant development for us in Scotland, as we deepen our relationship with and support for the Scottish tourism industry. Scotland has an exceptional offer for the inbound visitor and we look forward to working with the industry to grow its share of this valuable market.”
Scottish Tourism Minister Fergus Ewing said: “We are delighted that UKinbound has chosen Scotland for its prestigious annual gathering in 2016. They have recognised that Macdonald Aviemore Resort and its partners will deliver a magnificent and successful conference in the heart of Cairngorm National Park, and I am very pleased that we have been able to support this bid.
“VisitScotland will work closely with all partners to ensure that UKinbound’s delegates are given every assistance to make the most of their visit to Aviemore and our country.”
