Speakeasy produced the annual conferences for Cycling Scotland, the national cycle promotion organisation for Scotland, in 2015 and 2016. Held respectively at Edinburgh’s Our Dynamic Earth and Perth Concert Hall, both events followed a similar format.
Delegates drawn from around Scotland with a keen interest in promoting and developing cycling took part in some cycling study tours on Day 1, which concluded with a Civic Reception. Day 2 consisted of a day of plenary sessions, panel discussions, ministerial addresses, workshops and keynote speeches.
Speakeasy worked with the Cycling Scotland team to plan the agenda for each day. We programmed and launched the conference website and online booking facility, and liaised with the venue to coordinate all catering, logistics and AV requirements. We also designed and built a striking 8m set backdrop for the main stage.
Our brief included coordinating the requirements of 20 exhibitors at each venue. Our content producers gathered and formatted all speaker content and wrote the script for the conference host, BBC Sports presenter Rhona McLeod.
Arriving at the venue, delegates were greeted by our onsite team and checked in with our sophisticated scanning and badging system.
Many thanks to you and your team for all the hard work for this year’s conference – especially dealing with some last minute complications! The feedback has been very positive.
-Keith Irving, Chief Executive, Cycling Scotland
