VisitScotland announces cancellation of Expo

Proxy

Due to a significant number of cancellations caused by Coronavirus (Covid-19) it is with regret that VisitScotland has decided to cancel this year’s VisitScotland Expo that was due to take place on 1 and 2 April at P&J Live in Aberdeen.   

Malcolm Roughead, Chief Executive of VisitScotland, said:“We have been monitoring the situation for some time but it is clear that we are already seeing significant cancellations from key countries, as well as concerned enquiries about the event and hesitancy from attendees to travel.  With the number of cases of Coronavirus increasing across the world, we did not want to contribute to its potential spread across Scotland and beyond.  “We will continue to connect buyers and the tourism industry and are currently developing ideas about how we can use technology and digital channels to make those connections - but we won’t be able to physically run the event this year. We are already looking at how we can further support the tourism industry going forward and will continue to monitor the situation on a daily basis.  “We will make an announcement regarding next year’s Expo in the near future.”
