What you need to know

The International Events Funding Programme is at the core of EventScotland’s work. Our EventScotland team fund major, world-class events through this programme of investment.

Internationally significant events like this raise Scotland’s profile as the Perfect Stage. These events also shine a spotlight on our country’s assets:

  • Our people
  • Our culture and heritage
  • Our natural environment
  • Our world-class venues.

We support events though this programme by:

  • Working on bids with local authorities and governing bodies to secure major international events
  • Communicating with event organisers for annual events where we have an established relationship
  • Actively looking for new and existing events to bring to Scotland for the first time.

Please contact us directly using the methods detailed on this page if you would like to discuss any opportunities further.
