Perth and the region place marketing – workshops

As I’m sure you’ll agree, economic success is good news for each and every business based in Perth and the region. A more successful economic area means more jobs, more visitors, increased investment, improved skills and more money in the local economy – which is something we’d all like to see.

We have a fantastic set of assets, but we believe that much more needs to be done to raise the profile and image of the place to make potential investors, workers and visitors aware of our offer, with a view to securing more investment, stimulating more visitor spending and attracting more talent to the area.

One of our priorities is to build on the success of previous work further with partner organisations and the business community to develop the ‘story’ for Perth and the region, identifying what makes us distinctive, and creating a competitive, coherent and compelling narrative and brand proposition that we can all use as ambassadors for the area.

We would very much welcome your insight and opinions in support of this piece of work to help us shape that story by attending an interactive workshop to collect your insight, thoughts and knowledge of Perth and the region.

We are holding three workshops during March, at different times of the day in different locations. We really hope that you will be able to attend one of the below workshops, and be involved in this exciting project.

6th March, 6 – 7.30pm – Birnam Arts Station Rd, Birnam, Dunkeld PH8 0DS

7th March, 8 – 9.30am – Perth Concert Hall, Mill Street, Perth PH1 5HZ

8th March, 8 – 9.30am – The Green Hotel, 2 The Muirs Kinross KY13 8AS

To register to attend please contact Jennifer McGregor on jennifermcgregor@pkc.gov.uk or 01738 475397.

We very much hope that you will be able to be involved in this exciting project. Please do not hesitate to forward this invitation on to other colleagues who may be interested or want to be involved.

Yours sincerely,

Steven Stewart
Chair of Story of Place Project Board
Partnership with Perth and Kinross Council
