We aim to promote the Edinburgh city-region as a leading leisure, learning and business destination for domestic and international visitors, enhance the national and international reputation of the city-region and promote sustainable economic development and growth.
Edinburgh is a global city in which innovation, learning and culture thrive; one that offers an exceptional quality of life and in which there are considerable opportunities for inward investment, academic study, and leisure and business tourism.
City marketing is an essential step in strengthening the economic position of the Edinburgh Region. This not only has a positive influence on the city’s public image internationally but also for local residents, boosting their sense of civic pride and appreciation. To achieve this, we work together with public and private organisations, cultural institutions and universities.
