The Board and management of Visit Inverness Loch Ness wish to express their thanks to member businesses for their support in ensuring a continuation of the work of the Tourism BID for a further five years.
Graeme Bell, Chairman of Visit Inverness Loch Ness said, “It is fantastic news that once again local businesses have supported the organisation. It was the first of its kind in Scotland when established in 2014 which said a lot at the time of recognition by local tourism businesses of the need to work and contribute collaboratively for the greater good. It says even more this time when business costs are rising, that members still recognise that a strong, financially supported destination management organisation is an important contributor to the success of tourism in the destination.”
Graeme Ambrose, CEO, said “ We are very pleased that members have once again supported Visit Inverness Loch Ness and put their trust in the organisation to deliver. The ballot result enables us to commence without delay important new projects, not least the development and launch of the LochNess360° trail, the support of local community events and working much more collaboratively with VisitScotland. Equally to continue to grow not only our online presence and the value and importance of business tourism to the local economy but also to offer continued business development opportunities for members.”
