A tourism boss has set out hopes that a series of oil and gas events could help bring a recovery for Aberdeen’s hotel market this year.
The World Energy Cities Partnership AGM, the first ever Energy Export Conference, BP’s AGM and Offshore Europe are among the city’s oil and gas calendar for 2019.
Andrew Martin, vice chairman of the Aberdeen City and Shire Hotels Association, is hopeful they can bring a boost to occupancy rates in the city, along with the newly created £333m TECA exhibition centre.
Occupancy and average day rates for the city’s hotels have dropped significantly since the 2014 oil price crash.
