Event Director Judith Wilson joined the Event Industry News podcast to talk about the forthcoming EVENTIT Scottish Events Expo in Glasgow. Having relocated to the recently re-branded Scottish Events Campus (SEC), the second year of the event features significantly more exhibitors and an expanded conference programme.
During the podcast, Judith explained how and why the first event was created, and what to expect from this year’s show.
“Until last year there wasn’t an opportunity for the events and festival supply chain in Scotland to showcase themselves to the event and festival buyers, so we decided to fill that gap. A lot of people were looking in to see how we performed, but it obviously hit all the right markers as it’s really taken off for year two. Last year we had just over 1,000 people register and two learning strands, which received huge interest. I think that possibly this was because there isn’t as much opportunity in Scotland for event professionals to be able to get some training outside of their actual job. Thus, that particular element has doubled for the 2017 show.”
EVENTIT, The Scottish Events Expo, takes place on Thursday 9th March. Further details about the event are available by listening to or watching the full podcast episode.
