Welcome to the Scottish Tourism Week 2017 website, your dedicated resource with everything you need to know about the week long event taking place from 15th – 22nd March 2017.

Our STW ‘Connecting 2020’ Roadshow was a huge success in 2016 and saw the STA travelling the length and breadth of the country, connecting with upwards of 2020 businesses.  This was one of the highlights of Tourism Week and we are already planning for 2017, the roadshow of industry conferences, seminars, business breakfasts, lunches and receptions.

This year's STA Signature Conference is titled "Tourism: The Future- Beyond 2020" and will take place at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow on Wednesday 15th March. Spotlight Stage Sessions will also form part of this year's programme through our link with ScotHot being held in the adjoining Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC). The day will conclude with a Civic Reception hosted by The Lord Provost of Glasgow followed by our Dinner with a Difference showcasing Scotland's finest produce taking place at The Glasgow Science Centre immediately. 

On Thursday 16th March, ScotHot and our Spotlight Stage Sessions will continue, together with a number of business seminars.

Once again,  Scottish Thistle Awards will be held on the evening of Thursday 16th March at the EICC, Edinburgh.

The STW2017 Parliamentary Reception, sponsored by The Caravan Club, will take place at the Scottish Parliament on 22nd March,and will be a fitting end to Scottish Tourism Week.
