At this time of the year a lot of our species like geese, waders and passerines will flock together in large groups as 'strength in numbers' can help decrease the chance of predation for individuals and also increase their chance of finding food source, benefiting the species as a whole. What a great chance for tourism operators to do the same at this time of the year by performing a communal gathering and benefiting themselves and their company through engaging with fellow professionals and working together to survive and to thrive in the sector. Just like all ecosystems rely on the interconnections to make it complete, I think an integral part for tourism operators is engaging with related businesses, attending workshops and corporate events to help evolve your business and it could be the missing link to your set-up.
|Working together for everyone's benefit|
Visitor spending in Scotland is around 4 billion pounds annually and 1.4 billion of that is nature-based spending which works out at 40% of all tourism spending in the country. This means that anyone working in the industry has an important role to play in representing the country in a large part of its economy. By attending events like the Wild Scotland Industry Conference it can help you reach these high levels and keep up with the rising standards in the 21st century.
|Sustainable wildlife and adventure tourism can be achieved for the benefit of businesses, wildlife, customers and our natural heritage.|
Below is a list of the guest speakers and workshops which will take place at the annual Wild Scotland Industry Conference on the 26th November 2014. I hope to see you there!
