North Ayrshire businesses boost tourism demand post-pandemic

At a recent VisitScotland event, North Ayrshire tourism businesses helped boost their international tourism demand after restrictions on COVID-19.

The companies worked directly with tour operators, travel consultants and destination management companies representing key global markets at last month’s event to re-engage visitor bookings from abroad.

Discover Scotland: Reconnect 2022 is part of VisitScotland’s work to restore international tourism demand, as well as to support the country’s ambitions to become a leading destination for responsible tourism.

Participants included VisitArran, Ayrshire & Arran Destination Alliance, Bellevue Farm, Davidson Travel Group Ltd and Marine Troon.

The National Foundation of Scotland, which has also visited, manages and administers Brody Castle, Garden & Country Park and Goat Fell on Arran, Culzean Castle & Country Park, Robert Burns Birthplace Museum, Ayr, Bachelor’s Club in Tarboltan and Kirkaswald, Souter Johnnie’s Cottage and Museum Burns’ birthplace in Alloway.

VisitScotland Regional Director Gordon Smith said: “Domestic visitors have contributed to the recovery after exposure to Covid-19.

“But the return of our foreign guests is a serious step towards a responsible resumption of Scottish tourism.

Discover Scotland 2022 allows businesses in Ayrshire and Arran to connect with key buyers from around the world to attract visitors from near and far to help rebuild Scotland’s valuable tourism industry.

“Apart from the economic benefits of interacting with global markets,“ Discover Scotland ”was an extremely enjoyable week in terms of re-establishing contacts with colleagues and clients from around the world.

“We look forward to the opportunity to share our beautiful scenery, history, culture and warm welcome with visitors this summer and beyond.”
