Producing the Homecoming Scotland 2014 Launch

Hopetoun House was the backdrop to a spectacular launch production of Homecoming Scotland 2014. Homecoming Scotland 2014 is a yearlong programme of events which is designed to showcase all that’s great about Scotland’s arts, natural and cultural heritage.

The events include battle re-enactments, Findhorn Bay Arts Festival, a festival to celebrate the life of John Muir, the 50th anniversary of the Forth Road Bridge and high profile events to herald the Ryder Cup and Commonwealth Games coming to Scotland.

Alex Salmond visionevents were at the head of a highly competitive tendering process to produce the launch event for Homecoming Scotland 2014. This coincides with other events which visionevents have been chosen to produce for the Ryder Cup, Commonwealth Games and other VisitScotland/Event Scotland initiatives.

The visionevents team were responsible for creating the backdrop for the launch event as well as providing all Audio Visual equipment and production support during the live event. Operations
Director, Ali Robertson said:

‘visionevents are delighted to produce such a high profile event. The stage set looked fantastic in the ballroom and was the perfect platform for the First Minister. When the eyes of the nations press are on your event, it’s important to make sure each aspect of the event production is perfect. As we own and maintain all our own equipment in-house, it gives you piece of mind that each and every event will be perfect.’

The Homecoming 2014 launch comes of the back of visionevents producing the Scotland Prepares conference which was the first event at the new Emirates Area and continues visionevents’ reputation as the industry leading event production company in Scotland.

Homecoming Launch 2014visionevents are already planning for 2014, which promises to be one of our most exciting years yet. Alex Salmond, Scotland’s First Minister said:

‘We are already preparing to stage two of the largest sporting events on the planet during 2014 and with the packed programme of events being announced today – and many more in the pipeline – there really couldn’t be a better time to plan a trip to Scotland.

This announcement is a testament to the strength of the events industry in Scotland and the UK as a whole. As visionevents have offices throughout the UK, also with a recent expansion into Bristol, there could not be a better time to have visionevents organise your next event.
