The seminar will be held at Apex City Hotel, Edinburgh on 4th September 2014. There will be multiple sessions held throughout the day, each holding a maximum audience of 15 people.

The seminar is broken down into 4 sections, giving a holistic view on Chinese tourism in Scotland.

Jo Leslie, China - UK Business Development Manager at VisitBritain will present The Great China Welcome Programme which aims to make Britain the most welcoming destination in Europe for Chinese visitors.

Yuva Arumugam, Sales Manager – Emerging Markets at Apex Hotels will discuss the motivations and
benefits of joining The Great China Welcome programme.


Stephanie Cheung, Managing Director at China Holidays will discuss the different ways you can work
with Chinese visitors, help you determine if China is right for you and your product, and share strategies
you can use to promote your product in China.


Fiona Hunter, Assistant Marketing Manager – Emerging Markets at VisitScotland will talk about the
differences between the Western and Eastern tourist, the profile of the Chinese tourist, including the
motivation to travel, interests and expectations as well as explaining the content of the Toolkits that can
