Approximately 30,000 people are employed in tourism and related industries in Glasgow.  With its reputation as a welcoming city, it is Glasgow’s people that make the difference.  A number of agencies provide support with recruitment, training and skills.

We hosted a series of webinars tailored to businesses across Glasgow and the surrounding area, delivered in partnership with VisitScotland. The programme helped support reopening and recovery from the coronavirus pandemic as lockdown restrictions were eased. The webinars included conventions, content creation and distribution, social media in a time of crisis and visitor markets. View the full webinar series
