As the Home of Golf becomes the Home of the Ryder Cup in 2014, Scotland and Perthshire in particular is set to see a massive boost in tourist numbers as thousands of fans from Europe, the United States and beyond visit the country to attend the tournament or are attracted to our shores by the huge marketing run by VisitScotland in this the Year of Homecoming. The Homecoming celebrates all that is great about Scotland and also invites the Scottish Diaspora to explore their ancestral heritage.

Away from the course there will be lots of business and networking done at the many hospitality and corporate entertainment venues and events connected to the Ryder Cup. And it is not just Gleneagles that will benefit. All local accommodation providers have reported huge interest from both individual and especially corporate clients who have block booked to host some spectacular corporate events throughout Perthshire.

The Ryder Cup will serve to really put Perthshire - Scotland’s Business Centre - in the shop window for the week that the world’s media and corporate world – long associated with golf – are in the region and it will also be a great opportunity for a unique range of Perthshire businesses – hotels, corporate event and hospitality providers, conference venues or companies working in the teambuilding and incentive market – to reach out to these visiting businesses to show them Perthshire has so much more to offer than world class golf and accommodation.

Located in beautiful countryside just 90 minutes from 90% of the Scottish population, Perthshire is already one of the top venues for conferences and corporate events in Scotland. It is close to all major Scottish cities – including Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen – with excellent travel links and also boasts a diverse range of venues for conferences and events as well as an unrivalled choice of outdoor attractions. In short, Perthshire has everything you need for business – and a whole lot more.
