Scottish conference planners, including Dunfermline Football Club, The Boathouse, Aberdour and Knockhill Racing Circuit have experienced Fife's tourism businesses and meeting facilities first-hand.

A two-day event hosted by VisitScotland’s Business Tourism Unit and Fife Council, saw some of Scotland’s top meetings and conference organisers visit west Fife, highlighting the range of venues for holding meetings and conferences.  

The Boathouse, Aberdour, The Bay Hotel, Kinghorn, Balbirnie House Hotel, Cluny Clays, Keavil House Hotel, Carnegie Conference Centre, Dunfermline Football Club, Garvock House Hotel and Knockhill Racing Circuit all took part in the familiarisation trip.  

Business tourism has an integral role in the Scottish economy; the most recent research showing that 2.8m business trips were taken, contributing £809m to Scotland.  

The two day event is designed to bring together meeting planners and let them experience first hand some of Fife’s best venues, suppliers and event providers. 

Neil Brownlee, head of the business tourism unit said: "The importance of business tourism and the role it plays in Scotland cannot be underestimated. Not only is business tourism recovering well, there is clear evidence that it is on track to being a £1billion industry.
