Tourism Business Meeting @Bowhouse on Wed, 2/20

Food tourism is a new and major attraction for people visiting the East Neuk area. Which is why the Visit East Neuk Feb. 20 tourism-business meeting takes place at Bowhouse (near St. Monans), which replaces a missing link in the local food chain and enhances the regions’ agricultural offerings.  

The meeting, 6:45pm-9:30pm (approx), has different speakers updating guests about tourism developments in the East Neuk and Fife. Gavin Sime, Social Media expert, video blogger and main speaker, will explain why tourism businesses should use SM, how to make it work for you, and what the benefits can be.  The £10 entry (cash/credit card at the door) includes coffee/tea/buffet, and a year’s membership in Visit East Neuk (aka the East Neuk Local Tourism Association on Facebook).  Attendees can bring business cards/fliers/brochures/sales pieces (in quantity) for display and take-away by other attendees for their clients/guests. RSVP by Feb.18 EOB to:

Tourism meeting might be of interest to you….

If you have any involvement with visitors to Anstruther, Cellardyke, Kilrenny or are within the East Neuk/nearby areas, a meeting on Thursday, 29th November, might be of help and interest to you.

Playfair Consulting were engaged by Anstruther’s merchant group, TEAMAnster,  to investigate how ACK could increase the benefits that tourism offers.  Improving the visitor experience, how to attract more visitors to visit the town/area, how to increase their “spend”, and what visitors want/expect from their visit are among the topics which Playfair has been looking at.  After working on the project for three months, the Playfair team are ready to present their findings to all interested parties.

This presentation will be in the Lower Town Hall, Anstruther Town Hall ( the old library ), beginning at 7pm, and ALL ARE WELCOME to attend this presentation.
