Delegates will take part in three days of high-level debate on topics including; the Uber economy, the science of events, the cultural revolution and the risk factor. The event is the result of a partnership between VisitScotland, the International Special Events Society and the IMEX Group.

Following their stay at Gleneagles, delegates will then visit Edinburgh for a private event at Edinburgh Castle as well as dinner on board the Royal Yacht Britannia in Leith.

Neil Brownlee, head of business events at VisitScotland said: “The Global Event Summit is a unique opportunity to engage with some of the most important and influential live event professionals in the world. A combination of knowledge exchange and showcasing the very best that Scottish hospitality has to offer will show these members of the global events community the true spirit of Scotland.”
