Scotland's event community gathers at new Glasgow show

The Main Event launches at the SECC in Glasgow on 28 February 2008, designed to offer inspiration to event buyers who produce and manage events in Scotland by showcasing businesses in “an exciting and entertaining environment”, according to organisers QD Events, a business formed in April 2007 out of what was a joint venture between Clarion Events Scotland and the SECC.

“The Main Event Scotland is the first new event to be launched by QD Events in its current form,” said managing director Fran McIntyre. “As with all our events, the show is designed to excite, delight and inspire. Our young, creative and dynamic team always ensures we deliver visitors, guests, sponsors and our clients with exciting and memorable experiences.”

Exhibitors to The Main Event range from unique venues, such as House for Art Lovers designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Winton House, built in the 15th century, which has housed guests such as Mary Queen of Scots and Bonnie Prince Charlie, to quality catering companies such as Sodexo Prestige and Wilde Thyme, and cutting edge lighting, staging and production from the likes of Finix Productions and 88 Events.

The one-day show will include a Main Event Bar (with Glasshouse Events and Bar Nomadics), the centre piece of the show, a Main Event Theatre (with MCL), which will allow buyers of all levels to hear, learn and ask questions about the various sections of their job. There will also be entertainment throughout the day from The Entertainment Company, which will be showcasing a variety of contemporary and classic acts, a live ice carving from Ice Box, and fresh oysters will be served around the show.

The Main Event is the first show to be organised by QD Events, which now has the largest portfolio of events in Scotland, with established shows including the biannual Scottish Wedding Show in Glasgow, the spring presentation of The Scottish Wedding Show at Ingliston Edinburgh, the IRN-BRU Carnival (Europe’s biggest indoor funfair), Scottish Caravan & Outdoor Leisure Show and The Scottish Baby Show.
