Aberdeenshire aims to attract tourists from Germany

Aberdeenshire Council is hoping to bring visitors from Deutschland to Deeside the with the launch of several workshops throughout the North- east in order to entice more German tourists to the area.

The workshop planned for the Deeside area is at Glen Tanar Ballroom on November 12.

Germany is the economic powerhouse of Europe and is a potentially lucrative market for the important North- east tourism sector.

The council’s economic development team has set up four workshops over a number of dates and locations for tourism related businesses,

Wilfried Kloepping has been appointed to oversea the project for the council and will host the workshops.

Mr Kloepping said: “With the frequency of daily flights from Frankfurt, we will put Aberdeenshire on the map not only for the travel trade, but for the German market in general.”

“These workshops will be ideal to learn about the requirements of German tour operators and the expectations of German tourists coming to Scotland.”

Chairman of Infrastructure Services, Councillor Peter Argyle said: “The campaign and workshops aim to promote the North-east as an ideal tourist destination and highlight marketing incentives which would attract German tourism.”
