On 20 January 2022, Cog Events Scotland will kick off with their first event, a panel discussion centred around planning major events and their impact on cities. COP26 will be used as a latest example and a case study for this event and will feature topics such as sustainable planning of major events, resources, mitigations of risks, incorporating hybrid, keeping up the legacy post event. The event is addressed to anyone interested in the event sector, event management students as well as young event professionals.
It is involved in planning of large events, that could share first hand experience and act as a resource and inspiration for our audience.
Cog Events Scotland is a newly formed brand by City of Glasgow College HND event management students. The event itself is a part of their project portfolio, and it goes by the motto of ‘put on by event students, by event students’.
‘This is such a great opportunity for us, having lived and studied events through COVID times, then witnessing COP26 taking place on our doorstep, we wanted to seize the opportunity to put on a meaningful event and get kick off those eventprofs connections. We all know the situation in the event industry is tough out there, and event courses are still going across Glasgow’s universities, but there isn’t a platform for us to connect in what we do and share experiences and learn from each other”, says Cog Events team.
Following the panel, there will be an open Q&A and a networking hour.
Confirmed speakers include:
The session will be hosted by Suzanne Lynch, lecturer at City of Glasgow College.
The event will be held online via Hopin Platform, from 5pm to 7pm. It is free to attend.
