The National Events Conference is for all those working to create, deliver and support Scotland’s cultural and sporting events.

The Conference is organised and delivered on behalf of Scotland’s events and festivals sector by our Events Directorate and is an important part of working in partnership to deliver the National Events Strategy: Scotland the Perfect Stage.

A look back on the 2019: Embracing Innovation, Delivering Change

The last National Events Conference took place in 2019 at the world-renowned Gleneagles Hotel, alongside one of the world’s greatest women’s sporting events - The Solheim Cup. Under the title Embracing Innovation, Delivering Change, the 2019 National Events Conference considered innovation, change, future opportunities and challenges across the sector.

The day included inspiring keynote presentations and practical breakout sessions. It provided over 200 delegates with a first-class opportunity to hear from industry experts and share experiences, plus plenty time to meet industry colleagues and enjoy the fabulous surroundings of the Gleneagles resort.

Thank you to all who spoke, all who listened and all who helped to deliver an excellent conference in support of Scotland’s world-class events and festivals sector.  It is anticipated that the next National Events Conference will be held in Autumn 2023.
