Spotlight on Aviemore

More than 250 UKinbound members will descend on the Macdonald Aviemore Resort in Scotland from 10-12 February next year, for the trade association's annual convention.

Ukinbound focuses on the interests of the UK's inbound tourism sector. Supported by the VisitScotland Conference Bid Fund, the conference is returning to Scotland for the first time in more than a decade.

Situated in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park, Aviemore is famous as one of the top outdoor activity destinations in the country, with mountain biking, snow sports and hiking among the most popular pursuits.

One of Scotland’s five ski resorts and the sixth highest mountain in the UK, Cairngorm Mountain is now operated by Natural Retreats, a specialist leisure and travel company.

Guests heading to The Ptarmiga are transported on the funicular railway to over 3,000ft straight to the highest restaurant in the UK, where a sub-arctic landscape provides the backdrop for events.

Among the many nearby activity providers in the area is Rothiemurchus Estate, which offers 4x4 off-road driving, clay pigeon shooting and Segways among its numerous exciting pursuits.

Moira Unwin, VisitScotland’s regional business events manager for the North of Scotland, said: "Aviemore has to be one of the most spectacular settings imaginable for a conference. And, as a mecca for all things outdoors, the delegates from Ukinbound certainly won’t be short of things to do while they’re here."

This year's UKinbound convention was held in Leicester.
