Scotland House to fly the saltire in London

VisitScotland's Business Tourism Unit (BTU) is among the partners joining the Scottish Government to host a 'Scotland House' facility in London during the Olympic Games.

Located on Pall Mall, Scotland House offers a central location for friends of Scotland to meet and do business in London during the 2012 Olympic Games. With Scottish sourced food and drink, entertainment and famed Scottish hospitality, the partners aim to bring a bit of Scotland to the heart of London.  

Scotland House will open on 27 July and run until 12 August, and the VisitScotland BTU will be hosting a networking dinner for corporate buyers, agents, and association buyers on 2 August. A number of spaces in the venue will also be available daily for business meetings, lunches and larger gatherings. 

"Business tourism is a lucrative sector and consequently we are operating on a fiercely competitive global stage, " said Lindsay Brown, UK marketing manager for the BTU. "Our Scotland House networking dinner is just one of a number of events we are hosting in London this year which allow us to share the very best of Scottish hospitality."  

Scotland House is a partnership between the Scottish Government, VisitScotland, EventScotland, Scottish Enterprise, Creative Scotland, sportscotland, with input from Glasgow 2014, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau and Marketing Edinburgh.
