US media giant Forbes is taking its annual European CEO Conference to Scotland for the first time next year.

The three-day event is to be held at Gleneagles from June 14-16 and will be attended by 170 senior business leaders.

The conference is designed to coincide with the ‘Homecoming Scotland' celebrations in 2009 - the 250th anniversary of the birth of Robert Burns.

"The company's owners have ancestry is Aberdeenshire and so will be celebrating that by coming to Scotland for the first time," said Caroline Packman, head of Visit Scotland's Business Tourism Unit.

Elsewhere, Visit Scotland has confirmed Neil Brownlee as meetings and incentives manager.

Brownlee joins from event caterer Prestige Scotland where he was business development manager. He replaces Manuela Calchini, who has moved to become Visit Scotland's business development manager.
