As the hospitality sector begins to open its doors after months of forced closure due to the pandemic, and travel restrictions are relaxed, we look not just at the challenges which face the industry in the short term, but also what needs to be done over the next 10 years to help cement Aberdeen as a destination of choice.

In this session, hosted by Elaine Farquharson-Black, our expert panel from Aberdeen's tourism and hospitality industry discussed the key steps required, explore potential solutions and interventions and shared their thoughts about the future for the city.

Guest speakers:

  • Chris Foy, Chief Executive of VisitAberdeenshire
  • Frank Whitaker, General Manager, Park Inn by Radisson Aberdeen and Chair of Aberdeen City & Shire Hotels Association
  • Stuart McPhee, Director, Siberia Bar & Hotel and founder/spokesman for Aberdeen Hospitality Together
