Thanks for joining us at Highland Tourism Conference 2023.

Our event took place on 28 November at the Kingsmills Hotel, where we welcomed more than 160 tourism businesses, organisations and stakeholders. It was a busy agenda, hearing about topics such as climate change, sharing Scotland's stories and visitor insights, and more. 

We heard from a range of speakers from organisations including Jamie Brogan from Edinburgh Institute of Climate Change, Expedia and our own Head of Brand and Global Marketing, Cat Leaver. 

Delegates also heard from local businesses who were recent finalists in the Highland and Island Thistle Awards. This included the Duisdale Hotel, Stories of Scotland podcast and GALE.
