THE Tall Ship at Riverside, one of Scotland’s leading tourist attractions, has appointed Perceptive Partners Communications, a boutique communications consultancy based in Glasgow to carry out public relations activity.
Established in 2006, PPC is one of Scotland’s leading communications consultancies, specialising in property, technology and tourism sectors. Clients include Cisco, City Legacy, developers of the Athletes’ Village for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and Thomas Cook.
Duncan Cunningham, chair of the Clyde Maritime Trust, said:
“We are delighted to be working with Perceptive Partners Communications who are very focussed on helping to raise the profile of The Tall Ship Glenlee and indeed the offer of free entry just in time for the Easter holidays! We have already started to see great results from working together.”
Julie Moulsdale, managing director of Perceptive Partners Communications, said:
“It’s fantastic to be working on yet another iconic venue in Glasgow, especially one so closely linked to the heritage of the city. As one of only five Clydebuilt sailing ships still afloat and the only one of her kind in the UK, The Glenlee is well worth a visit. Berthed beside the new Riverside Museum in Glasgow and with one million people visiting this museum each year, we expect to see a surge in visitors taking the opportunity of visiting this great attraction free of charge.”
Scott Taylor, chief executive of Glasgow City Marketing Bureau, said: “The Tall Ship at Riverside is a huge part of Glasgow’s industrial and cultural heritage so it’s a welcome decision that will ensure a great many more Glaswegians and tourists will have every opportunity to visit this wonderful floating museum.”
