SSDA Newsletter February 2023

It’s been a wonderful first month in post. Thank you to all who have taken the time to meet me and share their vision and their priorities for the future of tourism in the South of Scotland. If you fancy chatting and haven’t already, do watch my introduction video and schedule a meeting.

I am absolutely committed to supporting, representing and promoting our members, and making the SSDA the most energetic, impactful and inclusive destination management and marketing organisation in Scotland.

Scottish Tourism Month is almost upon us and it’s a busy and important time, with our Visitor Economy Week, UCI information events, and – most importantly –  the Annual Conference on the 14th of March in Peebles.

I hope to see you at the conference, when we will have some really significant announcements on: the upcoming multi-agency tourism strategy for the South of Scotland, the new Coast-to-Coast cycle route, and more. – David Hope-Jones, OBE, CEO of SSDA.

If you aren’t yet enjoying the benefits of membership, join today  and be a part of our upcoming activities.
