Q2 2019: Main Barriers to Success
The Tourism Industry Barometer is a nationwide survey conducted on a quarterly basis. The survey is a partnership between VisitScotland, local councils and destination organisations. The results are used at a regional level to provide feedback to businesses on how tourism in our area is performing.
91 respondents from Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire gave feedback on Quarter 2 2019 (April to June inclusive). We also achieved a sub-regional report for Kincardine and Mearns (sample of 31).
The bar chart shows the results for Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire, Kincardine and Mearns and Scotland as a whole. Similar to previous Barometer waves, Q2 respondents stated that the main barrier to success was "Economic conditions" closely followed by "Footfall and visitor numbers". These were also the main barriers to success highlighted by the Scotland-wide sample.
