The Scottish Events and Festivals Association (SEFA) is bringing together some of the key people involved in the delivery of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games to discuss the Games’ legacy and impact on Glasgow and the wider Scottish event industry.
Presentations and a panel discussion will allow attendees the opportunity to gain further insight into the long term impacts (economic, social, cultural and environmental) that hosting the Games had city – and if and how the event industry can benefit.
The event will be held on 19 November at the Glasgow Concert Hall. Speakers will include Scott Taylor (CEO, Glasgow City Marketing Bureau) Paul Zealey (Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games), Stuart Turner (events director, EventScotland), and Ian Hooper (director of sport and special projects, Glasgow Life).
Chris Lawson, SEFA vice chair states “With such a massive year in Scotland for events, we ask how can we maximise on the potential and how can we build on this for the future,” said SEFA vice chair Chris Lawson. “This event is bringing together the key stakeholders in an open forum, it should prove to be a great event with lots of insight.”
