VILN Renewal Ballot 2019

VisitInvernessLochNess was established in 2014 as the first Tourism BID in Scotland. Over the past 5 years, we’ve promoted the area to the world as a leading tourism destination, whilst helping to improve infrastructure and the visitor experience and thus deliver real benefit to member businesses

On March 7th 2019, the organisation will seek the approval of levy paying members for another 5-year term at the renewal ballot. In order for members to make an informed decision at the vote, over the next few months, VisitInvernessLochNess will be undertaking extensive consultations with members in order help inform the new 2019-2024 Business Plan, designed to ensure that we deliver the initiatives that best benefit businesses and the destination

Consultations will be either one to one face to face or phone call, open meetings or drop-in sessions. Details of all open meetings or drop-in sessions will be posted here, on Facebook and highlighted in our monthly newsletter.
