A hospitality institution has expanded its offering to visitors by launching its own travel agency.
Surgeons Quarter’s newest venture, Surgeon’s Quarter Travel, will add to their events and conferences business by arranging global travel for conference delegates as well as for experienced surgeons and members of the public.
It currently handles 48,000 delegates attending the 2,000 events across four venues.
Scott Mitchell, managing director at Surgeons Quarter, said: “Many of our surgeons travel frequently for exams and educational purposes – it makes sense to coordinate all of their travel and accommodation in a more streamlined way.
“We also have tens of thousands of delegates visiting our venues each year, so we can now provide a unique all-round service that will include transport to Edinburgh, accommodation and events.”
