Topic & Speaker:"Optimised Sustainable Combinations of Air and Sea Travel to Remote Island Communities" by Thomas Schönberger

Thomas Schönberger will outline ways to make remote island communities in Western Scotland more accessible, while aiming for options with minimal CO2 emissions to contribute to Scotland's intended transition to a low carbon economy. His analysis considers current policy challenges to provide more frequent connections to remote island communities in response to a growing public need for better accessibility while at the same time becoming less reliant on public subsidies for supporting sustainable growth on remote Scottish Islands. Presented in October at the European Transport Conference in Dublin, his paper offers thoughts that might be applicable to coastal communities across Europe and beyond.

Topic & Speaker:"Events, my dear boy, events": How logistics and transportation impact the image of the Edinburgh festivals and tourism by Professor Emeritus Joe Goldblatt, FRSA

Professor Emeritus Joe Goldblatt, FRSA, was executive director of the International Centre for the Study of Planned Events at Queen Margaret University. He is the author, co-author and editor of nearly forty books in the field of event management. Before coming to Queen Margaret University, he served as chairman of the US state of Rhode Island's Tourism Advisory Commission, which has been recognised for best practice in tourism promotion and management. He advocates that Edinburgh should follow North American custom in imposing a transient visitor levy to support tourism promotion and operations, and has suggested that pressure on Edinburgh City Centre in August and at Christmas could be eased by the creation of a Festival Park to decentralise activities.
