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.

Angus Tourism Framework

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 priority themes as follows:

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

For more information, see the Angus Tourism Framework action plan.

Regional Tourism

The four local authorities (Angus Council, Dundee City Council, Fife Council and Perth & Kinross Council), Scottish Enterprise and VisitScotland are working together to support the growth of the tourism sector across the region.

A new regional tourism strategy has been developed following consultation with tourism businesses and organisations, which aims to grow the volume and value of the visitor economy in the Tay Cities region.
