Return of EVENTIT marks Scotland’s first major business event in 2021
The annual showcase for business event professionals will return this year after a forced two-year hiatus because of Covid-19.
Its comeback marks the first major business event to be held in Scotland since Covid-19 restrictions were first introduced last year.
EVENTIT will be held on Friday 10 September at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). A mix of exhibitors and buyers from across Scotland and further afield are expected to attend the event.
EVENTIT director of events Judith Wilson said: “We are delighted to be able to announce the date for the face-to-face EVENTIT tradeshow. After so long without any physical events, it will be wonderful to reconnect the industry throughout Scotland and beyond.
“So much has happened over the last year within our sector and this will offer the perfect opportunity for event organisers and planners to meet up with suppliers, old and new, to find out what developments have taken place during lockdown, partnerships that have been formed with other suppliers and the creative solutions and innovations now available.
“It is an exciting time for our industry, and we are so happy to be providing the platform to restart events in Scotland and bring our community from far and wide back together again.”
EVENTIT’s education programme, with practical workshops and masterclasses and speakers from across the UK events industry will be confirmed in due course.
EICC CEO Marshall Dallas added: “The EICC held the very first EVENTIT at our venue in 2016 and we’re greatly looking forward to welcoming the organisers, and industry professionals alike, this September, particularly after such a challenging year for the whole sector – a sector that contributes billions of pounds to the Scottish and UK economies.
“As an industry, the last twelve months have tested everyone’s resolve, collectively we have had to innovate in the face of the pandemic, with related measures having been put in place, but nothing beats the experience that is derived from meeting up in person. We all look forward to getting back to that.”
