Scotland's Conference Funding Boost

05/12/2014

The Scottish Government has pledged £1m to the Conference Bid Fund, which provides matched-funding to Scottish destinations bidding to host eligible conferences.

Announcing the new bid fund, Fergus Ewing, Scotland’s Tourism Minister, said: “I’m excited to launch The Conference Bid Fund as it will build the competitiveness of Scotland’s cities and destinations within the international conference market.  

“We join the likes of Hong Kong, Vienna, Vancouver and Washington in supporting our business tourism industry in this way.

“The Fund will help attract high?yield, high?spend international conferences linked to Scotland’s areas of expertise in industry, commerce or science and medicine. 

“It will build on the great success that Scotland already has in this area and boost our economy in the process.”
