Benefits of Partnership
By working together, we can raise the profile of Dundee and Angus as a first class business tourism destination.
Business tourism generates over £63 million of economic impact for Dundee and Angus, creating or safeguarding nearly 1,353 full time equivalent jobs. It also generates over £12.6 million direct delegate expenditure, representing 17% of the total visitor expenditure in the area.
Business tourism 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 tourism 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.
