INVEST LIVE VISIT website showcases Aberdeen
The exceptional opportunities presented by the Granite City are to be showcased in a new website as part of the city's ABERDEEN INVEST LIVE VISIT campaign.
Highlighting that Aberdeen is alive with energy, the council's City Promotions team will launch the new site at Offshore Europe.
The new website www.aberdeeninvestlivevisit.co.uk offers a one-stop shop for information on the city and what it has to offer. The INVEST LIVE VISIT website aims to capitalise on the city's enviable reputation and showcase the exceptional opportunities available here.
The 40th year of Offshore Europe one of the world's largest exhibitions and conferences of its kind will see more than 50,000 visitors pass through the doors of the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre this week. There is no better time to launch the new site to a targeted audience of key players in the oil and gas industry.
With Aberdeen attracting massive capital investment, new enterprise driving the need for more skilled workers and as one of the top places in the UK to live and work, the site is sure to complement the city's ambitious future.
Aberdeen remains one of the main drivers of the UK economy and the newly-created ABERDEEN INVEST LIVE VISIT campaign is being used to bolster its attractiveness to businesses, tourists and residents alike.
The site is about much more than the energy industry. It provides information about a broad range of topics, as well as news articles about the city's successes.
Council leader Barney Crockett said: "Aberdeen City Council is using ABERDEEN INVEST LIVE VISIT to market our city and the many wonderful opportunities it offers across the board, to businesses and people throughout the world.
"Aberdeen is a fantastic city, which not only has incredible business potential and remains one of the main driving forces of the British economy, but also has a great deal to offer leisure visitors as well as its own residents and workforce.
"Offshore Europe and other events, for example the International Youth Festival, present us with unmissable opportunities to promote ourselves abroad, at home."
