Are you looking for the ticket to developing a tourism offering for the North East of Scotland? If you are already working in the tourism industry in a micro business or SME this short course will help you develop new ideas, run and grow a successful business and go step-by-step through the tools, examples and support needed to develop your business.

From highland adventures and tours, to historical castles and cultural museums, Aberdeen is home to a stimulating visitor economy. Follow your passions and grow your business in the tourism industry – perhaps you’ve got an idea for a new visitor attraction or a unique tour service or a new accommodation offering or a cultural experience or travel tech – the ideas are endless. On this short course - we’re not going to focus on the theory – we’re going to keep it practical so that each session gives you the ticket for the next part of your journey as a tourism entrepreneur.
