Another amazing weekend for Reel Time! Some lovely clients asked us to provide great conference entertainment in Scotland for the 2019 AACSB.

The conference was at the EICC, with many of the guests staying at the sumptuous 5* Sheraton Hotel, a mere 4 minutes’ walk from the registration desk!

The Event

The client approached us with a brief of spicing up registration day. They wanted to create a number of different networking opportunities around the day long check in on Sunday thus, fostering relationships between partner organisations as this is a key focus of the conference.

From 9.30am until 3.30pm, (on and off!) our Scottish accordion and guitar duo played some traditional Scottish tunes and there was definitely some toe-tapping going on.

Our Scotland Virtual Reality experience was available in the afternoon enabling guests to take a 5 minute tour of the rest of Scotland and seeing places they may not get the chance to see on this visit. The delegates were amazed by this new Scottish entertainment offering.

The VR technology used along with the high quality Scottish video tour we have created, immerses guests in Scotland with one or two even worried they were going to get their feet wet!

Evening entertainment

On the Sunday evening, we had two of Scotland’s grade one pipe band players piping a welcome for guests on arrival and two of Scotland’s revered musicians in concert with clarsach and mandolin gracing the networking event.

For the opening ceremony of the conference sessions on the Monday morning, we had a piper and Scottish dancer display opening the conference with a Scottish spectacular bang and ensuring all the attendees were wide awake!

Later in the day, the client requested a conference session on Scotland and its heritage. They were looking for this to be a fun conference style speech.

The Moorfoot at the EICC was packed for this session as The presenter took the attendees through the history, uses and modern takes on some of the icons of Scotland; Burns, bagpipes, kilts and then all washed down with a bit of whisky tasting.

It was great to provide the Scottish conference entertainment for the AACSB Conference 2019 in Edinburgh.
