Committed to Excellence

Annual Conference – #ASSC2015

Tuesday 10th November 2015
Glasgow Hilton

Book Now!The ASSC Annual Conference and Exhibition is the only major event aimed directly at the people and businesses providing holiday rental accommodation in Scotland.  This year we will focus on our “Commitment to Excellence” – what visitors to Scotland expect now and will demand in the future.  How do those offering self-catering accommodation respond to the needs of their visitors?  What are the new, successful providers offering and why?  What new trends will emerge or take hold in in the coming few years?  What do we have to do to ensure we are committed to excellence?

Following the success of recent ASSC Conferences, we are expecting many business owners, property managers and industry decision makers to attend this year’s conference and exhibition in Glasgow. The day will be compèred by Willie Cameron, Director of Visit Loch Ness; Director of Highlands & Islands Tourism Awards and Founding Director of The Cobbs Group – voted Highland Business of the Year 2014. Keynote speakers include Nick Nairn, celebrity chef and entrepreneur and Charlie Smith, Marketing Director, VisitScotland.

The sessions will take the form of short interactive presentations by industry experts giving up-to-date information on:

  • what’s new in social media and how we can use this medium to work for us
  • search engine and internet marketing solutions
  • accessibility
  • getting a 5* look on a budget

HomeAway – the world’s leading online marketplace for the vacation rental industry – will also talk about innovation in the travel industry and how they are helping families and friends find the perfect vacation rental to create unforgettable travel experiences together.

We will be hosting a “Question Time” expert forum whereby you can ask question from our esteemed panel of guest speakers.  Delegates are urged to submit a question in advance of the conference for consideration by our panel and audience.  There will also be an opportunity to submit questions during the lunchtime interval.

Book your place before 31st August and an Early Bird discount will apply.

Book Now!Exhibition & Sponsorship Opportunities

The ASSC conference offers unique opportunities:

  • to engage with highly valued and active industry professionals
  • to interact directly with self-catering accommodation owners
  • to have direct discussions with key decision makers
  • to increase your brand awareness
  • to position your organisation at the forefront of the self-catering industry.

A number of sponsorship, exhibition and advertising opportunities to suit all budgets exist for businesses and organisations to get involved in during the run up and on the day of the conference.  ASSC conference audiences have always highlighted the value of speaking face to face with suppliers they may have heard of but been reluctant to buy from.  Our delegates appreciate fresh ideas, and hearing about the latest opportunities within a fast-moving industry.
