Business Tourism Scotland: Conference 2015 welcomes a host of thought provoking speakers who will challenge us to think differently in how we sell, promote and deliver the business tourism product in Scotland. We will be talking about emerging trends, how to engage audiences differently, the customer journey and the opportunities for collaboration. Our speakers will deliver motivation, inspiration and practical tips for you to take back to your own business.
