Thirty senior live event professionals attended the inaugural Global Event Summit at the Gleneagles Hotel & Resort in Perthshire last week. The trip followed on from their participation in this year’s IMEX in Frankfurt.
The first ever Global Event Summit was the result of a partnership between VisitScotland, the International Special Events Society and the IMEX Group.
Delegates took part in three days of high-level debate on topics including; The Uber Economy, The Science of Events, The Cultural Revolution and The Risk Factor.
Following a stay at Gleneagles, delegates visited Edinburgh, where highlights included a private event at Edinburgh Castle as well as dinner on board the Royal Yacht Britannia.
Neil Brownlee, head of business events at VisitScotland said: “The Global Event Summit was a unique opportunity to engage with some of the most important and influential live event professionals in the world. A combination of knowledge exchange and showcasing the very best that Scottish hospitality has to offer showed these members of the global events community the true Spirit of Scotland.”
