EVENTIT is Scotland’s only trade show for business events, meetings, incentives and hospitality professionals. We aim to provide buyers and suppliers with the opportunity to connect with industry professionals involved in delivering Scotland’s £3.5bn business events and meetings industry. As well as the exhibition element, EVENTIT also includes an education programme, combining panels and masterclasses on varied themes. We pride ourselves on the networking and business that is done through EVENTIT, and the community we have established.
Business Events Leaders’ Summit is 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 economies.
The E Awards are Scotland’s only awards for the events industry, and aim to celebrate the success, innovation and talent within the Scottish business events and festivals communities. Across a wide variety of categories, they are free to enter and open to organisations and individuals either based in Scotland or who have delivered an event within Scotland.
What’s Trending in Events is likened to ‘speed dating for the events industry’ where delegates rotate in small groups around several short sessions across key topics – most recently these were Event Technology, Communication, Well-being and Theming.
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.
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
I really enjoyed this year’s event, it was very worthwhile. It’s great to have an event dedicated to event planners in Scotland.
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.
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!
EVENTIT was great having the opportunity to meet with so many suppliers and hear from event professionals in the sessions.
