Event Details

#hellodigital are offering 30 businesses the opportunity to receive hands-on training and borrow a 360 video camera for 2 weeks each.

The businesses can be from any sector and of any size. What’s important is that you can demonstrate how access to the 360 camera will provide a real benefit to your business. When you apply, you’ll be asked to outline how you hope to use it and to demonstrate that you have someone within your business who can commit to completing a project.

We’d really like to be able to share some of your work at #hellodigital and on social media when you are happy with it too.

Every business awarded access to a 360 camera kit must attend one of the three training days, in Inverness, Oban or Lerwick and put a plan in place to make use of the camera in the 2 weeks that follow.


Inverness 17/18 October

Oban 2 November

Lerwick 6/7 Dec

Each of the dates above will kick-off with a public seminar on why and how 360 video is being used by businesses today. This is open to a larger audience.

Businesses interested in actively using 360 video to promote their business can apply for a place on the extended hands-on training and the opportunity to borrow the 360 camera kit for 2 weeks.

Please ‘Register’ in order to register your interest and receive an application form.
