ScotWeek Is Going Virtual For 2021
PRESS RELEASE | 21.02.15
Last year when the decision was made to postpone ScotWeek until the following year and instead focus our energies on helping our friends at NYC Tartan Week have a successful Virtual Tartan Day, who knew that we would still be living in a pandemic world? Even though the global population has begun to be vaccinated, it is still apparent to everyone in the event industry that we are “not quite there yet” with regards to fully reopening for live events. That is why, even though we held out hope that we would be able to hold an in-person ScotWeek, we have decided to take ScotWeek digital-first for 2021.
We are excited to announce that on April 16 & 17, starting at 9am PST each day, we will be broadcasting live via the our website ScotWeek 2021: A Virtual Celebration of Scotland.
ScotWeek 2021 will be a 2-day online virtual global conference that will feature 50+ industry experts from various fields of business and entertainment. Attendees will get the opportunity to not only be entertained, but to be informed and educated by top cultural & industry experts live through presentations, panel talks and Q/A sessions.
Meet, greet and mingle virtually with Scottish art, film, music, business and industry professionals!
