VisitScotland is the national tourism organisation for Scotland. A very important player within the organisation is the Business Tourism Unit. This has its own website, www.conventionscotland.com with which every event organiser anywhere in the world should become familiar.
It ranges over all kinds of venues for all kinds of events and also gives some insight into the remarkably wide range of landscapes and facilities in a comparatively small country.
Visit Scotland’s Business Tourism Unit is a one-stop source of information on MICE services and facilities.
