Scotland looks to the future
June 1, 2010

Golf Tourism Scotland (GTS) has announced that it will host an all-day forum on Tuesday 6 July to discuss the future of golf tourism in Scotland . The high-profile event will form a key part of the celebrations marking the trade body's fifth year of campaigning for the golf tourism trade sector.

Hosted at Murrayshall House Hotel in Perthshire, the all-day national forum will bring together an impressive line-up of key-note speakers from both public and private sectors to discuss what the next five years hold for golf tourism in Scotland . As a result, trend spotting will be the order of day along with a healthy dose of best-practice guidelines, with some educated and inspired projections for the future.

Included in the exciting programme of speakers is VisitScotland's director of visitor engagement Malcolm Roughead (OBE), Scottish Enterprise's head of tourism Eddie Brogan, Scottish golf development manager for the SGU and SGLA Andy Salmon and Lee Derrick, owner of the multi-faceted marketing agency Blue Spinach.

Also giving their insights into what lies ahead will be Seamus Coen, a regional general manager at Macdonald Hotels and Max Hare, a German tour operator serving a host of European countries including Scotland .

"It's an extremely exciting line-up, made all the more intriguing by the theme of forum," noted GTS chairman Nick Hunter. "We've given them a fairly strict brief to identify key trends that will influence their sector and reveal how they intend to develop their organisations within these parameters. It will be a fascinating day, finding out what the future holds for each of us."

With more speakers still to be announced, the GTS 'Gimme Five' forum will be an intriguing and pertinent event for the entire golf tourism industry.
