Event summary and resources

Thanks to everyone who came along to the Perthshire Talks Cultural Tourism in-person event on Thursday evening (25 May).

We welcomed almost 60 tourism businesses from across Perthshire to Perth Art Gallery. The focus was on all things cultural tourism in Perthshire with a line-up of inspiring local speakers. 

We hope this event was time well spent, away from your business and inspired you with new ideas about how your business can benefit from the strong cultural tourism offer in the region.
