Reel Time Events were chosen to supply the 2017 Biophysics conference with a range of quality Scottish entertainment. The conference ran over three days at Edinburgh’s premier conference venue: The EICC. 1500 delegates were in attendance.
Reel Time worked closely with the conference organisers to build a range of events that would be fun, encourage networking and leave them with a great memory of their Scottish conference.
On their first evening, the guests were entertained with the spirit of Scotland, with a whisky tasting. Reel Time is well versed in providing large conference whisky tasting experiences, and our tasters poured and entertained guests. 1 blended whisky was compared to two different styles of malt whisky. The guests were impressed and intrigued, leaving them with some great whisky knowledge, as well as their own whisky tasting glass, engraved with the conference logo.
For their second evening event, we hosted a ceilidh night. 1100 of the conference delegates turned out to enjoy an evening of ceilidh dancing and fun! We had 8 Highland dancers on hand to help keep the ceilidh dance floor in good order. We taught the guests some of the easier ceilidh dances, which were enjoyed by an international audience. Our Scraggly Cats band mixed up the ceilidh dancing with some rock and pop classics to keep the dance floor at capacity all night long.
To conclude the Scottish conference with some signature entertainment, we brought in a mini pipe band to beat the retreat at the end of the last conference session. The delegates were taken completely by surprise, and it was a great lift and conclusion to a successful conference.
We met some wonderful and enthusiastic people, who really enjoying immersing themselves fully in our great Scottish culture.
