Tourism Funding

Another press release from VisitScotland on the 1st march announced a new Growth Fund, which will allow businesses to apply for a total of £1 million of funding over the next three years.

The fund is open to Destination Organisations (DOs) and industry groups.  It can support groups with up to 50% (from £5,000 – £65,000) of their marketing costs to develop and deliver new marketing activity, to help them reach new target markets, increase visitor numbers and create the environment for visitors to do more, stay longer and spend more.

The last Growth Fund saw forty-seven groups involving 2120 individual businesses from across the nation gain a total of over one million pounds in funding.

Anyone got a new business or business expansion plans? Maybe worth a look see. Read the full press release at  VisitScotland
