About

EVENTIT offers a portfolio of events throughout the year at which suppliers can engage with a qualified market of associations, in-house corporate, private, public and third sector event planners, booking and event management agents, DMCs and PCOs in Scotland, the rest of the UK and beyond.

Our programme for 2022 includes, in chronological order:

What’s Trending in Events – a series of small in-person events likened to ‘speed dating for the events sector’ where each supplier has the opportunity to inspire and WOW all attendees in short ten-minute showcase sessions covering Technology, Event Design, Sustainability & Well-being or Communication.

EVENTIT Masterclass Series – our virtual education programme offering sponsors and suppliers the chance to educate, inform and guide our audience in a series of online webinars and panel discussions. These will dovetail with the themes of our annual exhibition where attendees will be able to then meet with the experts in person to delve deeper into the subjects via small campfire sessions or visit exhibitors who can offer solutions to the challenges and/or ideas posed.

EVENTIT – our flagship annual tradeshow bringing together over 900 qualified buyers and suppliers for a day of engagement, discussion and networking. This one-day show enables our exhibitors and experts to meet in-person with key decision makers who are keen to explore new venues, technologies, creative options and meet suppliers who can work with them to deliver their future events and experiences within Scotland, across the UK and overseas.

Business Events Leaders’ Summit – a conference for senior event professionals aimed at stimulating conversation and debate on the direction of the business events industry to ensure it remains key to driving growth in local and regional communities.

E AWARDS – Scotland’s only awards for the events industry celebrating the success, innovation and talent within the business events and festivals communities who deliver events both within Scotland and across the wider world.

We want to become the leading network for the events industry in Scotland through bringing together event professionals locally and nationally with the aim of increasing knowledge, business opportunities and industry connections.

Visitor Testimonials

EVENTIT was and continues to be a fantastic catalyst for us, kicking off great new partnerships and leading directly to new business. I would highly recommend it.

– David O’Coimin, Nook Event Pods

Attending EVENTIT allowed me to re-engage with colleagues and suppliers from the industry in a friendly and collaborative environment. Things move quickly in our sector so EVENTIT allowed an opportunity to see what everyone is up to and discover what is new in the market.

– Jenny Elliot, Fitwise Management Ltd

EVENTIT 2021 provided the perfect platform to reconnect with buyers old and new. Our involvement in the EVENTIT FAM trip has led to valuable connections, ongoing enquiries and firm bookings. We will be back.

– David Russell, Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa

Having the opportunity to meet with such a wide range of venues and suppliers and learn about new technology and trends in the industry is an incredibly valuable and rare experience. I have already followed up with a number of suppliers I met on the day and hope to be working with them in the near future. A well organised and enjoyable day. I would highly recommend attending EVENTIT to anyone working in the Events industry

– Claire Hendry, NHS Scotland

I really enjoyed this year’s event, it was very worthwhile. It’s great to have an event dedicated to event planners in Scotland.

– Karen Devlin, Scottish Federation of Housing Associations

Being part of a small team means time is of the essence, and EVENTIT was a fantastic opportunity for me to reconnect with many existing suppliers of ours all under one roof! The welcome was slick, and the information provided about exhibitors was laid out well making it easy to navigate around the stands. I was also pleased to make some contacts with new suppliers who we have approached since EVENTIT with enquiries. Overall it was a very worthwhile experience and I would be keen to attend again in the future.

– Louise Sweeney, Director of Events, Andrew Burnet & Company Ltd

EVENTIT is a fixture in my diary as it is a very efficient way for event professionals to meet venues and suppliers, and find out about innovations in the industry. It saves me lots of time over the year as so many of the people I need to meet are in the one place!
