National Events Conference planned for December 2010

Jim Mather MSP at the National Events Conference 2008

EventScotland held the second National Events Conference in December 2008 at Gleneagles Hotel, Perthshire which focussed on developing a sustainable events industry in Scotland.

Speakers like Bruce Dewar (Chief Executive of 2010 Legacies Now, Vancouver), Claire McColgan (Executive Producer of Liverpool 08), John Scott (Chief Executive of Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth games) and Jim Mather MSP, pictured (Minister for Enterprise, Energy and Tourism) all discussed various aspects of legacy and sustainability.

While the morning session saw various speakers talk knowledgably about their given area of expertise, the afternoon saw breakout sessions on both sport and culture which allowed delegates to question a group of industry experts.

Our next National Events Conference will be held in December 2010 - more information will become available at the start of the year.
