Marine Tourism to the Fore at the Scottish Parliament

Wild Scotland will be contributing to discussions about the potential for growth and development in the marine tourism sector at the Scottish Parliament this Friday.

The industry wide day-long symposium, entitled “Marine Tourism: Scotland’s Sleeping Giant”, is the brain child of the Cross Party Group (CPG) on Recreational Boating and Marine Tourism and is thought to be the first time a CPG has held an event of this size and scope.

The Scottish Government has identified marine tourism as a potential growth sector for the Scottish economy and this symposium aims to investigate what the sector itself can do to grow, with an emphasis on smarter working, creating networks and helping the sector to achieve more by working together, sharing effort and cost and maximising the potential offered by existing Government strategies and Agencies.

Wild Scotland is a member of the CPG and will be speaking at the event.
