ASVA Members Drinks Reception
On the eve of Scotland’s Tourism Industry Conference, we held an ASVA members only drinks reception at ASVA member site, the Camera Obscura and World of Illusions in Edinburgh. With more than 100 members attending on the night, it was a very lively and engaging event, and it proved to be an excellent opportunity for the ASVA community to reconnect share stories and experiences and, of course, have some fun experiencing one of Scotland’s very best visitor attractions.
We would like to thank all of our members who attended on the night and for your continued support as we navigate our way through the ever-changing industry. We were also delighted to be working in partnership with Timberplay Scotland as our event sponsor, and we would like to thank them, as well as Lind and Lime Distillery for providing the drinks on the evening of the event.
