Event summary and resources

Thanks to everyone who came along to last week's Perthshire Talks Tourism in-person event. We welcomed almost 50 tourism businesses from across Perthshire to Birnam Arts Centre, to focus on all-things-adventure tourism in Perthshire with an agenda full 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 adventure tourism offer in the region.
