Details of the inaugural Global Event Summit will announced today at IMEX America in Las Vegas.
The Summit, a partnership between The International Special Events Society, Visit Scotland Business Events, and the IMEX Group, will take place in April 2016. A number of senior event professionals from North America and Europe are expected to attend IMEX in Frankfurt before heading on to Scotland for three days of high-level debate, according to a press release from ISES.
“We are very excited to be announcing the launch of the first ever Global Event Summit here during IMEX America," said Jodi Collen, CSEP, ISES international president (in photo). "This is set to be a landmark event in 2016, and we are very grateful for the support of our valued partners, IMEX Group and Visit Scotland.”
The summit will be held in Edinburgh and include trips to Scotland’s largest city, Glasgow, which played host to MTV Europe Awards in 2014 and is home the world-renowned Gleneagles Resort, host of the 2014 Ryder Cup.
“This event perfectly matches our desire for Scotland to be at the very heart of the global event industry," said Visit Scotland head of business events Neil Brownlee. "Scotland is the perfect stage for events of all shapes and sizes. We have a highly valued and active relationship with both ISES and IMEX and are delighted to be hosting this significant event during the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design in 2016.”
