The Gathering
19th & 20th February / SEC, Glasgow

Host an event

The Gathering programme of events allows hosts to reach and engage new audiences.

We are working with event hosts from the point of booking to ensure there’s no clashes in the programme in terms of themes or audiences, that we have themed strands of events taking place back to back each day so visitors can plan their day more effectively.

We are planning a pre-registration over the coming months, we’ll be asking visitors what they are interested in attending so when we launch the programme in January we can better target audiences in terms of themes and who event hosts want to attract.

Event hosts can hire a range of different room sizes and setups throughout the two days. Each room comes complete with screen, projector, laptop, lectern with built in microphone, and top table with microphones. We also provide staff on the day to assist with registering delegates.
