Scotland House at Glasgow 2014

visionevents are excited to announce that we have been chosen as the AV supplier for Scotland House during the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games, in a move which singles out visionevents as a leading AV production partner for large events.

The purpose of Scotland House is to celebrate Scotland’s Sporting Achievement, Culture and Business potential during the Commonwealth Games. To achieve this, an exciting programme of events have been planned which are designed to connect people and companies across Scotland with new international market opportunities in Commonwealth countries.

The venue for the Glasgow 2014 Scotland House will be Glasgow’s City Halls and the Old Fruitmarket. These are fantastic venues in the heart of the Scotland House 1Merchant City which will be transformed by visionevents from our local Glasgow office located just a few minutes away from the Scotland House hub!

 

The main aim of Scotland House (and the measure of its success), is to bring people together, and it is this power of evens to unite people from all backgrounds which keeps us so passionate about our work.

This uniting effect was certainly the case for Scotland House during London 2012, which was also technically produced by visionevents. The House attracted a mixture of celebrities, politicians and business leaders, interacting with those exhibiting and the iconic Scottish brands which were there too. This resulted in Scotland House at London 2012 being a mixing pot of creativity, commerce and the place to be seen!

London 2012 set a great example for what can be achieved at Glasgow 2014. We will be using Scotland House at London 2012 as a yard stick when developing the House concept at Glasgow 2014. It is our job to offer those exhibiting better ways to speak out to those visiting Scotland House, and there is no better way to communicate your message than through events.

Lulu at Scotland House London 2012This sentiment is reflected by Commonwealth Games Minister Shona Robison who said:
“Everyone has a role in making Scotland shine even brighter in 2014. Scotland House will support our work to show the world that Scotland is a great place to live, work and invest by hosting an invigorating programme of formal and informal events to strengthen business and cultural links, connect our companies with new markets and business growth opportunities, and to leave a lasting Games legacy for Glasgow and Scotland.”

This is our brief: to make “Scotland shine even brighter…” , and we will be doing this literally by providing our in-house AV equipment, and by helping our partners at this once in a lifetime event in Glasgow.

From our point of view, having a strong base in Glasgow for 20 years sets us apart from the competition, as we can call upon our trusted network of staff, suppliers and freelancers to pull all the elements of your event together, and make sure you capitalise upon the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
