Scotland House closes its doors

Scotland House has now completed its operation in London, where it has been a highly successful hub used to promote Scotland to an international audience during the Olympics.

Scotland House has hosted over 80 events with at least 2,500 visitors including more than 500 business leaders and a number of Scottish athletes. During a wide and varied programme of events promoting Scotland as a place to visit, live, study and do business, Scotland House has reached out to people in countries including Australia, Malaysia, Japan and China.

The success of Scotland House is due to the Team Scotland approach and EventScotland thanks all of our partners for their enthusiastic commitment to this initiative.
