FIFE has welcomed a delegation of 30 guests from VisitScotland as part of a staff familiarisation visit to boost their working knowledge of the wide range of tourism attractions that Fife has on offer.
The Fife Tourism Partnership and tourism businesses across Fife were invited to get involved in the event, and provide a taster of what their business has to offer visitors to Fife.
The response from local businesses keen to host a visit for Scotland’s national tourism organisation was so overwhelming that two separate tours had to be arranged across Fife on the day.
The delegation from VisitScotland consisted of representatives from all sectors of the organisation, including local and international marketing, and visitor information centres. The two groups visited a total of nine visitor attractions in Fife.
Vicki Miller, head of local marketing at VisitScotland, said: “We sell Scotland to the world, bringing millions of visitors and billions of pounds to the country and familiarisation trips like this one are really important for our staff to learn more about the products that the local areas have to offer. We had staff from all over Scotland and across many different departments within the organisation visit Fife to experience for themselves some of the many attractions the region has for visitors and locals alike, and learn more about the Kingdom.”
