Announced at IMEX America in Las Vegas this week, the summit will consist of three days of high-level debate among some of the most senior event planners from North America and Europe, following IMEX in Frankfurt next April.

The Summit will be held in Edinburgh, and includes trips to Glasgow and the Gleneagles Resort

Jodi Collen, international president of ISES, said: “This is set to be a landmark event in 2016 and we are very grateful for the support of our valued partners, IMEX Group and VisitScotland.”  

IMEX Group CEO Carina Bauer said the Summit would become an important event for ISES in Europe, and cemented relationships between the trade show organiser and the association by exposing senior buyers to the Frankfurt show.

Debates will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, while hospitality events will be held on the Royal Yacht Britannia, which is moored at Ocean Terminal, Leith.

VisitScotland’s head of business events, Neil Brownlee, added: “This event perfectly matches our desire for Scotland to be at the very heart of the global event industry. We have a highly valued and active relationship with both ISES and IMEX and are delighted to be hosting this significant event during the Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design in 2016.”
