The National Events Conference – the biennial gathering for events and festivals professionals in Scotland – will be held this year as part of the Solheim Cup event at Gleneagles.

The one-day conference, which is the flagship industry conference for the events and festivals sector in Scotland, will take place on Monday 9 September at Gleneagles Hotel.

This will be Scotland’s 5th biennial National Events Conference. Building on the success of previous years the 2019 conference will consider innovation and change, plus future opportunities and challenges across the sector. It will provide delegates with a first-class opportunity to hear from recognised industry experts, share experiences and network with colleagues.

Also hosted at the Gleneagles Hotel that week will be The 2019 Solheim Cup – the pinnacle of women’s golf.

The Solheim Cup will see the best golfers from Europe and the USA go head-to-head over four days of competition, attracting tens of thousands of spectators and reaching a global broadcast audience in the millions. Conference delegates will have the unique opportunity to see behind the scenes of one of the biggest sporting events in Scotland this year.

Paul Bush OBE, Director of Events at VisitScotland said: “We are excited to welcome the stars of the women’s game to Scotland, the Home of Golf, for what promises to be an unforgettable week of world class golf. With only six months to go until The 2019 Solheim Cup at Gleneagles, it is exciting to see the European Team taking shape and for our home grown talent to start hitting form. We plan on hosting the best and most family-orientated Solheim Cup ever in 2019 with equality, experience and innovation at its heart.”
