Crieff Hydro Hotel & Resort to host buyers for Meet in Scotland event

On 9-10 October, Crieff Hydro Hotel & Resort will host more than 30 buyers from the UK and Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France during VisitScotland's inaugural 'Meet in Scotland' event.

The resort is located in Perthshire, which is still basking in the glow of The Ryder Cup, with the global golf event held at Gleneagles last month.

Crieff Hydro Hotel & Resort has twelve flexible function spaces. Set in 900 acres of countryside estate, there are more than sixty outdoor activities to choose from, including horse riding, shooting and Segways.

The Meet in Scotland event will give venues, hotels and other service providers the chance to meet with targeted qualified buyers from across Europe and the UK to discuss future C&I business. In addition to the workshop, there will be opportunities for further networking over dinner at The Famous Grouse Experience.

Complete with all the latest facilities and catering for up to 200 guests, Scotland’s oldest distillery is an ideal location for every scale of corporate event, even giving visitors the chance to seal and label their very own bottle.

The following day, buyers will take part in a range of activities including mini Highland Games and off-road Segways on the Crieff Hydro estate.

Another venue adding to Perthshire's appeal is the Byre at Inchyra. Originally built as a cattle byre on the Inchyra Estate, it has been transformed into an all-purpose events venue. 

Vaulted timber roofs, rough stone walls and original stone cattle troughs are combined with a state-of-the-art sound and light system, making the Byre a unique setting for smaller conferences.
