EventScotland is Scotland’s national events agency and a directorate of VisitScotland.

EventScotland works to generate, bid for and sustain events which will drive tourism and create international profile for Scotland.

Strong partnerships are at the heart of EventScotland and has attracted and secured a significant number of major international events to Scotland including: The 2014 Ryder Cup, MTV EMA 2014, Longines FEI European Eventing Championship 2015 Blair Castle, World Gymnastics Championships 2015 and the Turner Prize 2015.

In addition to the international events programme, EventScotland also provides funding for its national events programme – events which take place out with Glasgow and Edinburgh. These include: Wigtown Book Festival, British Pipe Band Championships and Orkney Science Festival.

The events which we support showcase Scotland as the perfect stage for events.
