ASVA Membersí E-Forum

28th May | 10am to 12pm
We are delighted to invite all ASVA members to join us for our first ever online forum. The event will take place on Thursday 28 May, from 10am -12pm, and will give ASVA members the opportunity to interact with each other and hear from some of the leading figures in the industry.
We have a great line-up of speakers for the forum including:

Riddell Graham, Director of Industry Development at VisitScotland. As Chair of the Scottish Tourism Emergency Response Group (STERG), Riddell will join us to provide an overview of the STERG Action Plan, with particular focus on the ‘Reset’ and ‘Recover’ stages of the plan.

Lucy Casot, CEO at Museums Galleries Scotland – Since the pandemic struck, Museums Galleries Scotland (MGS) have been conducting research into how COVID-19 has impacted the museums sector in Scotland and how ready the sector will be to recover when the lockdown ends. Lucy will share some of the analysis from this research, focussing particularly on smaller, independent sites, and will discuss some of the work currently being undertaken by MGS to support the industry.

Bruce Ritchie, Head of Operations at Edinburgh Zoo – As one of Scotland’s leading attractions with an outdoor focus, Bruce will provide a detailed overview of how Edinburgh Zoo is readying itself for re-opening and will share some hints and tips on how your attraction can ensure you are ready to welcome visitors safely once the lockdown is lifted.

Doug Lansky, Travel Writer, Author & Destination Development Advisor – Those of you who attended this year’s Scottish Tourism Alliance Conference in early March will remember Doug’s show stealing presentation at the event. We are delighted that Doug will be joining us to provide an international perspective on the COVID-19 crisis, looking at the impact of the pandemic on destinations and what we need to be ready for in the post COVID landscape.

The event will be hosted by ASVA Chair, Susan Morrison, who will also be on hand to provide an update on ASVA’s ongoing work on behalf of the attractions sector.
