How much is your conference worth?
Business events brings benefits for Dundee and Angus. On an economic level, spend per visitor (or yield) is often significantly higher than that of leisure visitors. Most business events takes place at times of the year when leisure tourism is at its lowest volume, therefore sustaining business levels for hotels and other businesses, during typically quiet periods.
It generates visitor revenue for cities and destinations which may not necessarily offer a competitive leisure tourism product. Hosting major national and international events raise the profile of the destination on a global level, and as many events are organised well in advance, it allows for future planning and budgeting. It can also attract inward investment, driving forward capital developments in the provision of new facilities and infrastructure.
