In Edinburgh, February 13-16, 2019, we offer you a fully loaded two-day conference with leading international experts, event owners and select international showcases that will provide you with all the insights and inspiration you need to cultivate the event scene in your city. We proudly present event leaders and creatives from some of the world’s leading happenings and dissect the strategies that made them successful. We uncover the dark side of the moon with a “festival of failures” where brave survivors of epic disasters and shitstorms in event management will share their experiences and valuable learnings.

All of this will unfold in the world heritage city of Edinburgh, Scotland’s proud capital and “the world’s festival city”. For longer than a lifetime, Edinburgh has made cultural, sporting and commercial events the principal ingredients in the city’s efforts to connect and communicate with the world. The Edinburgh International Festival, Festival Fringe, and the famous Military Tattoo have become signature events with a global outreach and a massive touristic attraction that helps drive the number of visitor arrivals to outnumber the population of 500 000 friendly locals with a ratio of almost 10:1. Still, the city was very recently ranked the most attractive city in the UK to live and work in and it is easy to see why.

With this top-loaded conference programme, you have the perfect cover to come see for yourself. Welcome to Edinburgh!
