Angus Tourism Cooperative intends to promote collaborative working between local businesses and organisations and identify new tourism ventures. Considered an innovative tourism initiative, it has been launched to promote the Angus County as an “unmissable visitor destination”.
Chairperson of Angus Tourism Cooperative, Ann-Marie Black, said: “One of Angus Tourism Cooperative’s main aims is to ensure the county is firmly in the forefront of potential visitors’ minds when they’re planning holidays and short breaks.”
Angus offers an unrivalled mix of things to do and places to go.
Last year, one million visitors came to Angus, which is great news – but the tourism board wants to ensure even higher numbers of visitors come to Angus.”
Angus Tourism Cooperative has been established by a group of local businesses and organisations involved in the tourism industry, including Glamis Castle, Murton Trust, Blacks of Brechin, Balmuirfield House and the Caledonian Railway, supported by Scottish Enterprise, VisitScotland and Angus Council.
At the launch at the Caledonian Railway on Tuesday, Ann-Marie stressed the group is keen to welcome new members.
Steve Moir of Caledonian Railway, vice-chair of Angus Tourism Cooperative, echoed the need for a large collaborative effort to promote Angus.
Steve added Angus Tourism Cooperative will be hosting a recruitment event at House of Dun, near Montrose, on Wednesday November 1.
