A programme of online and in-person tourism events across Perthshire
Perthshire Talks Tourism is a series of webinars and, more recently, in-person events. Each one is led by a different local tourism association or group across Perthshire. The series aims to inspire, inform and connect tourism businesses across the region.
So far, webinars have covered what local groups and businesses have planned, opportunities to work together, and ultimately how to make sure that our visitors know about all the inspiring things to see and do while in Perthshire.
This series is hosted and delivered in partnership with VisitScotland and Perth & Kinross Council, on behalf of the Perthshire Tourism Partnership.
We've held three webinars, which are available to watch back.
We also have a new upcoming event that you can register for today.
