XpoNorth On The Road
A packed one day version of XpoNorth featuring a programme of inspirational panels, presentations, 1-2-1's and networking opportunities looking at how you can drive your creative business or career forward. This completely free event is relevant for whatever stage you're at in your creative journey, and offers the chance to meet a range of industry specialists, discuss challenges and opportunities and put your own questions and opinions forward.
XpoNorth is Scotland’s leading Creative Industries festival, with this year's edition taking place across the 27th and 28th of June in Inverness. If you work or want to work in the Creative Industries, XpoNorth is the place to be, with almost 2,500 delegates attending from around the world, it's an opportunity to meet leading international industry figures and buyers- as well as a wide range of businesses from across Scotland and further afield.
A hot-bed of creative activity, the conference and showcase takes place over two exciting and energising days and nights in the Highland capital. The only festival of its kind in Scotland covering crafts, fashion and textiles; writing and publishing; screen and broadcast; digital and technology and music, XpoNorth is a unique event in the UK's cultural calendar.
By day, XpoNorth hosts a packed programme of seminars and workshops featuring leading players from across the creative industries. By night, the festival sets the city alight with creativity, from the event’s firmly established new music showcase soundtracking a host of city centre venues with over 60 of the hottest new acts around, to a specially curated short film programme and a range of relaxed networking events and parties.
The magic of the festival is its unique atmosphere; the XpoNorth experience offers delegates across the creative spectrum an inspiring daytime schedule followed by the evening music and film mix, all set against a backdrop of the beautiful Highlands of Scotland in midsummer.
XpoNorth is also a creative industries network that provides business support and help on behalf of Highlands and Islands Enterprise year round. This network approach supports creatives based across the Highlands and Islands to achieve their goals in the fields of screen, broadcast, gaming, writing, publishing, design, craft, fashion, textiles and music.
