Events & Sustainability
Jonathan Smith, Founder & Executive Director, GEO Foundation (consultant to The Solheim Cup)
Dan Withall, Estates and Sustainability Manager, Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo
Lachlan Kirk, Implementation Advisor, Resource Efficient Scotland
Environmental change is one of the biggest challenges facing the Events & Festivals sector. Alongside their own personal desire to act responsibly, event organisers face pressure from all sides to deliver events that minimise environmental impact. Many events have responded positively to the challenge and become high-profile ambassadors for the innovation that drives sustainability, particularly around single-use plastics. Delegates will hear from sector experts with case studies from two major events, plus have the opportunity to ask questions and share their own experience.
Visitor & Audience Trends
Chris Greenwood, Senior Tourism Insight Manager, VisitScotland
Cimeon Ellerton, Chief Product Officer, The Audience Agency
An opportunity to hear from senior representatives of two organisations at the forefront of identifying, understanding and tracking current visitor and audience trends. Delegates will also be invited to share their own experience of changing audiences and the impact on their events and festivals.
Solheim Cup Site Tour
A unique opportunity to see behind the scenes at The 2019 Solheim Cup and hear from some of the key people delivering the biggest event in women’s golf.
