Scottish Tourism & Events Sector Praised During COVID-19

Visit Scotland, Scotland’s tourism board, has celebrated the fantastic work and support that various tourism and events organisations have been doing during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Visit Scotland put together a short YouTube video(opens in a new tab) to highlight what businesses have been doing to show their support. The video thanks everyone for their ongoing help and assistance.

The short film shows the generosity and kindness of tourism heroes across the country who have gone out of their way to help their local communities, care workers, and others in the industry despite the challenges they themselves are facing.

Many businesses have been forced to close their doors for the time being and some have used their skills and facilities to help their local communities to support those most in need.

Countless hotels throughout Scotland have provided care workers with a place to sleep, distilleries across the country have been producing hand sanitiser, bakeries are providing free bread and products to NHS departments in hospitals – the list goes on!

Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said, “Scotland’s tourism industry is caring, resilient, and an important part of communities the length and breadth of the country – this has never been so apparent, with businesses and individuals rallying around to offer support.”

As a tour operator, no matter your location and only if you are able to, think of which sectors in your community could use your support. See if your skills, facilities, or spare time may be of use and don’t be afraid to publish your support online. By showing your community you’re there to help, you can create and build stronger bonds and relationships.
