Scottish Tourism Index – Webinar with 56 Degree Insight

Friday 17th June 2020 – 1-2pm

Join Visit Moray Speyside and data experts 56 Degree Insight for a deep dive into the latest Scottish Tourism Index Visitor Survey. The Scottish Tourism Index is a new monthly survey of Scots undertaken by Scottish based research and insights company 56 Degree Insight.

You will find out how Scots are feeling about the prospects of taking holidays and breaks as lockdown restrictions are eased, where are they most likely to consider (initially both within Scotland and further afield) and how COVID-19 has impacted on their considerations about where they might stay, what they might do and how they will travel?

The June survey also included new questions regarding the impacts of the new quarantine rules and how visitors feel about their potential impact on local communities and businesses. This event will be focused as much as possible on the local aspects of the survey and how the survey outcomes can inform Moray Speyside’s tourism business forward plans.

There will be an opportunity for Q&A.

Tickets are free but limited.
