- Burns Supper Conference Dinner
- 300 delegates
- voco Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow
We know from our 22+ years of experience that event management demands a huge degree of flexibility. An event planner must always remain adaptable and versatile, as a range of unforeseen circumstances can, and inevitably will, arise. Whether it’s a need to reshuffle dates because of Covid restrictions, a change of location or even a last-minute pivot to virtual, these things can happen! But here at Integrity, we take change in our stride and that’s exactly what we did for Scottish Renewables last month.
Following their 21-year anniversary last year, Scottish Renewables entrusted us with the task of organising a memorable, post-conference dinner in Glasgow. 300 key players from Scotland’s clean energy sector descended upon the voco Grand Central Hotel to celebrate success and break bread with esteemed government and industry officials. We were there to ensure the evening went without a hitch.
The event, originally scheduled for 25 February 2022, was pushed back twice due to the moving target of government restrictions. After considerable discussions, we landed on March 8, International Women’s Day. The date marked a poignant moment on the calendar for Claire Mack (Scottish Renewables Chief Executive), Bailie Christy Mearns (Deputy Lord Provost of Glasgow) and other female leaders from across the renewables sector. It made the occasion all the more personal for these women who are passionate about challenging traditional gender stereotypes, including Joanne Allday from the Port of Cromarty Firth: “It was a privilege to deliver a toast, especially on International Women’s Day and at such a critical time for our industry.”
A Sustainable Scottish Supper
We supported Scottish Renewables in their commitment to sourcing local, organic produce for all their events, wherever possible. So, as is the tradition, delegates were piped into dinner before relishing in their sustainable Scottish supper (including a bespoke vegan starter for all guests to enjoy). Simply delicious. Stravaig ceilidh band were on hand to provide the ideal, gentle-but-lively background music during dinner service with fiddle and guitar before delegates completed the evening by joining hands and sharing a rip-roaring rendition of Auld Lang Syne. An event that was definitely worth the wait, no thanks to Covid-19!
