XpoNorth is a unique, vibrant, international showcase of creativity attracting a wonderful celebration of speakers and participants to Inverness.
I have attended the event in previous years, enjoying seminars, film screenings and live music. This year I was honoured to take part in conversation about meaningful travel and the media with Lyn Hughes, Editor in chief and founder of of Wanderlust Magazine, and Peter Urpeth, journalist, musician and film maker.
At the celebratory opening dinner prior to the two-day event, I gathered with a huge range of creative people; fellow guest speakers from far and wide, including Boston USA, Hawaii and the island of South Uist!
Iain Hamilton, Head of Creative Industries for the Highlands and Islands shared his vision for XpoNorth in the festival brochure, and I’ve shared that below. Creative and cultural activities bring a huge economic boost to any region or country. XpoNorth is a huge feather in the cap of Scotland, ensuring that network of creative opportunity is vibrant and fizzing with potential.
My thanks go to everyone who made XpoNorth so very special! I had a fantastic time!…Ideas popping!
