Destination Guide: Scotland

VisitScotland gears up for 2014

Ahead of one of its most significant years for business tourism, Scotland has seen the completion of a number of major infrastructure developments.

VisitScotland will be showcasing many of these new developments at IMEX, taking place next week, including the £30m extension at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) which opened this month.  Its 2,000sqm Lennox Suite is fully equipped with a cutting-edge moving floor technology capable of transforming the space from flat floor exhibition, tiered theatre, arena through to tiered cabaret style.  

New hotels include The Caledonian, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel from Hilton Hotels in late 2012 whilst Wyndham Hotels and Resorts will launch its first Wyndham Grand in Scotland in 2015.  

There have also been a number of infrastructure developments, including welcome the arrival of ‘Little Red’ from Virgin Atlantic in April, bringing the country closer to North America though its international hubs across the UK. Meanwhile the destination’s close relationship with Lufthansa has seen the airline continue to increase its flights into the country. 

Following the successful launch of their thrice daily service between Aberdeen and Frankfurt, the German airline launched in April a daily service between Glasgow and Düsseldorf.
