Q4 (Oct-Dec) 2018: Main Barriers to Success (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire Respondents)
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.
These figures represent Quarter 1 (January - March) 2019 (Sample = 49 respondents).
Q1 respondents stated that the main barrier to success was "Economic conditions" closely followed by "Footfall and visitor numbers", perhaps to be expected when reflecting on the January to March period. These were also the main barriers to success highlighted by the Scotland-wide sample.
The Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire sample is relatively small so do treat results with some caution.
