Scotland the Perfect Stage: preparing for events

As the country progresses through the Scottish Government’s route map to recovery, events will be allowed to return on a phased basis depending on updated guidance. Event organisers should keep up with the latest guidance related to the events sector.

To help event organisers make preparations for their return to work and plan for what their events will look like in a post COVID-19 world, we have collated some specific resources to consider below.

Key considerations

With so much information to consider, the Get Events Ready guidance offers print-ready lists of key considerations for delivery of your event.

Sectoral guidance

The events sector has a lot of crossover and touch points with other industries through the supply chain, many of which will have specific guidance and best practice advice. Our moment for change page provides specific sectoral guidance from sector groups which should help in making preparations for the safe return of events.
