VisitScotland Is Calling Canadian Agents

VisitScotland will be hosting two destination training sessions in partnership with VisitBritain and ACTA on June 1, 2022.

The sessions will be held at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel in Toronto, with the morning session beginning at 9.30am and and the afternoon session starting at 2 pm.

As well, VisitScotland will be hosting an online Destination Training Session exclusively for agents and advisors across Canada on Thurs., June 2.

The events will be an opportunity for agents and advisors to ask Scotland experts for their hints and tips about travelling to Scotland, find out the latest news and learn about the unique experiences that can be enjoyed on a vacation to Scotland.

Keith Campbell, Market Development Manager at VisitScotland said: “We’re so pleased to be hosting these Destination Training Events for our agents and advisors in Canada; it’s a great opportunity to be engaging with our valued contacts in this key international market.”

Campbell continued: “We understand the important role agents play in the booking journey of travellers and we’re excited to be sharing news and updates from Scotland. The Destination Training Sessions take place during a month when connectivity to Scotland is taking off with returning direct routes to Glasgow and WestJet’s inaugural Toronto-Edinburgh route. With such great connectivity there’s never been a better time to sell Scotland.”

The Destination Training Sessions form part of VisitScotland’s activity to rebuild international tourism demand following the COVID-19 pandemic.

International visitors are a key component of Scotland’s visitor economy, accounting for a fifth of all visitors to Scotland but providing more than 40% of the overall spend. In 2019, Canada was one of Scotland’s top ten international markets in terms of visits and spend.
