Tourism is a priority sector for Angus, contributing £240 million to local economy and supporting 3,883 full-time equivalent jobs.

The Business Angus team work with the tourism sector to showcase the assets of Angus to visitors; improve the capability and capacity of the sector; enhance the visitor experience and maximise the potential of tourism driven by new developments and key events.

We co-ordinate the Visit Angus destination marketing campaign to raise the profile of Angus locally, nationally and internationally.

In April 2019, a new Angus Tourism Framework was launched which was produced in collaboration with tourism businesses and key stakeholders including VisitScotland and the Angus Tourism Cooperative. The framework has identified five priority themes as follows:

  • Industry Leadership & Collaboration
  • Pride of Place
  • Data & Insights
  • Product & Experience Development
  • Marketing

To keep up to date with the latest business and funding opportunities, news and events, sign up to receive the monthly tourism enewsletter.

If you would like to get involved with any of the working groups, please get in touch.

Tourism Familiarisation Visits

Between September 2019 and March 2020, a series of industry familiarisation drop-in sessions will take place across Angus.

These sessions provide a flexible way for businesses to find out about the range of things to see and do in the area, so that they can then pass this information on to visitors looking for suggestions.

We would encourage you to take some time to go and visit the venues taking part and find out what they have to offer.
