Perthshire Talks Tourism is a series of new webinars, each one led by a different local tourism association or group across Perthshire, which aims to inspire, inform and connect tourism businesses across the region.

Hear from local tourism businesses in your area – what they’ve got planned, opportunities to work together, and ultimately make sure that our visitors know about all the inspiring things to see and do while in Perthshire!


Pencil the date in your diary, as you won’t want to miss out, with topics including, food and drink, local developments in the area, recruitment, and more.
