Wales Tourism Alliance Chair, Andrew Campbell (2nd right) gave a presentation at Sail Scotland's Marine Tourism Conference, (6th March 2019) held in the Clydeside town of Greenock. The event formed part of Scotland's Month of Tourism and was focused on how best to secure opportunities for the Year of Coasts and Waters which commences in 2020.
Andrew gave an industry perspective and review of Wales' Year of the Sea 2018 campaign, based upon feedback received from WTA members - and was also able to share ideas and examples of good practice. It was also an occasion to showcase the nation's maritime assets, which one delegate described as a "great advert for Welsh tourism!".
