The USEC returns to Edinburgh Napier in 2017! Universities of Scotland Events Conference (USEC) is an annual running event, bringing together Events Management students from across seven Scottish universities. USEC2017 is the fifth edition of the event, and the second time it has been to our Craiglockhart campus. It will take place from 12:00 noon on Friday 24 March, running through the afternoon.

USEC2017 features a sandwich lunch, keynote speakers from the festival and event industries, a choice of workshops, and a closing debate… and it’s FREE to attend.

The conference will be focusing on contemporary issues in the festival and event industries, from employability to sustainability in a challenging environment. We are due to welcome a keynote speaker from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, workshop hosts from the British Arts Festivals Association and Marketing Edinburgh, and a closing debate featuring guests from industry and academia. USEC2017 provides everyone a chance to learn from the professionals and to share opinions in workshop discussions. What’s more, there will be plenty of networking opportunities.

Look out for the Eventbrite sign up, and stay tuned for more details about USEC2017!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Edinburgh Napier!
