Day 2 will see the launch of the Scottish Government's Agritourism Growth Strategy by Mairi Gougeon, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and the Islands. This will follow with sessions on market demand for agritourism and insights into consumer trends, and research and data on agritourism from home and abroad.
