Event description

Description

EventScotland is Scotland’s national agency for events. As part of EventScotland’s ongoing programme of local learning and development opportunities we are pleased to be working with Dumfries & Galloway Council to deliver a FREE half-day workshop for event organisers in Dumfries & Galloway and surrounding regions.

The purpose of this FREE session is to provide an update on the latest funding and development opportunities at EventScotland, including Scotland's recently launched Year of Coasts & Waters (2020). We also plan to include updates from number of relevant local event partners, including Dumfries & Galloway Council, VisitScotland and Police Scotland. Finally, the session provides a forum for event organisers to discuss their event experience and share good practice, plus feedback on current challenges and opportunities in the local area.

The format for the afternoon is as follows:

12:30 – 13:30 Arrival, Networking & Buffet Lunch

13:30 – 13:35 Welcome and Introduction

13:35 – 14:15 EventScotland Update

14:15 – 14:25 Q&A/Discussion

14:25 – 14:45 VisitScotland Update

14:45 – 15:00 Refreshment Break

15:00 – 16:00 Partner Updates & Discussion

1600 - Finish

Dumfries and Galloway Council is committed to making the region the best place in rural Scotland to plan, manage, deliver and visit great events. Over more than a decade, their work to deliver on the vision has aided the growth and emergence of more than a dozen nationally and internationally significant festivals and events. The work was and is guided by successive events strategies – in autumn 2017 the council adopted the Major Festivals and Events Strategy 2018-2021, which will focus on growing the region’s Signature events and to continue to invest in events that can flourish sustainably and generate excitement, enhance communities and add value to the local economy.
