where

Glasgow, Scotland
 

Hotel

Doubletree by Hilton
 

What was the main purpose of your trip?

I attended a tradeshow organized by Scotland’s tourist boards in Glasgow. The main goal was to seek out unique Scottish experiences and contract high quality hotels with authentic Scottish character – mostly castles.
 

Describe Glasgow

Glasgow is a hilly city with fine stone built Victorian architecture. It’s the largest city in Scotland and the center for music, architecture and nightlife. Also the people are very friendly (if you can understand the accent!).
 

Best sites to visit

Burrell Museum

The Burrells supplied steam-powered engines throughout the world until the internal combustion engine took over from steam power. The staff is very informative and it’s a great place to learn more about British history.
 

Riverside Museum of Travel and Transport

This is a free entry museum perfect for families and especially for those who love all types of cars, buses, trains… they even have vintage skateboards.
 

Best Traditional Foods

Haggis was good.
 

Best Travel Tips

Bring a warm Coat and talk to friendly locals.
 

What exciting future partners did you find in tradeshow?

Local Edinburgh Ceilidhs

– a social event with scottish folk music, traditional dances and storytelling

Local Whisky Experiences
 
Local flights to small Scottish Islands
 
Castle hotels
 
Scottish Livestock markets

 
I look forward to adding them to our tours.
 

What were the main insights you learned in the tradeshow?

Hotels in Edinburgh are at over 90% in occupancy and contracts for individual travelers are becoming more limited. We also have been getting more requests for tours around Scotland, so it is very popular right now. Canada is also growing as a source market.
