Dundee and Angus Convention Bureau has launched a business tourism strategy focusing on achieving growth in meetings and conferences.

The growth is expected to help create and secure 700 additional full time jobs over the next five years.

The strategy promotes coordination between the Bureau and venues, hotels and related businesses, and also details the Bureau’s 10 year plan.

Karen Tocher, business tourism manager at Dundee and Angus Convention Bureau said: “Building a successful meetings sector will create jobs and income for the destination.

“To make the most of the benefits that this can bring, it’s essential that new venues and facilities are developed within the Dundee and Angus area.

“Dundee and Angus Convention Bureau has two strategic objectives, to enable growth in the volume and value of business tourism and to enhance the competitiveness of Dundee and Angus as a business tourism destination.

“Our new strategy lays out how we will achieve this by promoting the destination to the UK and international meetings market.

“By supporting the universities, institutions and research establishments and improving the facilities and services in the area we can help to create and submit bids to secure meetings from across the globe.
