Speakeasy has been producing Venturefest Scotland since 2015 for national economic development agency Scottish Enterprise and partner stakeholders including Innovate UK and Glasgow City of Science.

Designed to drive economic growth through innovation, the annual event brings together entrepreneurs, innovators, investors and academics from across the UK and beyond to collaborate, learn, network and share knowledge and ideas.

Speakeasy worked with the client team to deliver an engaging and packed programme including 18 interactive workshops delivered by 80 contributors, an innovation showcase, an exhibition and a Meet-the-Expert programme of appointments.

Specific deliverables have included a mobile networking event app; a bespoke registration website infographic and fanfare videos promoting the event; coordinated social media and email marketing campaigns to drive delegate registrations and sponsorship raising of more than £100,000.

Recent successes have included generating 2,050 Twitter followers, more than 2,000 mentions and 1,500 retweets for the event.

Speakeasy’s expertise has proven invaluable at all stages of the planning process. On the day itself, their seamless teamwork and professionalism ensures the event runs smoothly – as evidenced by the exceptional delegate feedback received each year.
