Tourism agents from across the United Kingdom saw first hand what Carrick has to offer.
The strength of Ayrshire tourism businesses and meeting facilities was being showcased to a group of UK Business Tourism Agents over the weekend.
A familiarisation trip, hosted by VisitScotland’s Business Tourism Unit, saw seven of the UK’s top meetings and conference organisers visit Ayrshire, highlighting what’s ‘New in Ayrshire & Arran’ in particular the range of unique and purpose-built venues for holding meetings and conferences.
Following a visit to Turnberry Resort, the group experienced Culzean Castle, owned by the National Trust for Scotland as well as a trip to A.D.Rattray Whisky Experience and Whisky Shop at Kirkoswald.
Neil Brownlee, Head of Business Tourism said: “It is imperative that we continue to highlight the breadth of quality on offer for conference and incentive planners when coming to Ayrshire.”
