Holyrood Events: Who We Are & What We Do

Scotland’s leading provider of public sector events

Holyrood Events is Scotland’s leading public policy conference provider. Our portfolio of events explore topical issues and make complex subjects accessible, informative and educational.

There is a huge amount of interest in policy and politics but beyond the interest, people want to meet and discuss the issues that matter – Holyrood’s events meet this need, in-person and online.

Our devolved policy events offer niched discussion and are complimented by larger scale public sector summits and conferences.

We also host a number of bespoke client drinks receptions, roundtables and webinars throughout the year, and host the annual Scottish Public Service Awards, in partnership with the Scottish Parliament and Scottish Government.

The award-winning annual Holyrood Garden Party and Political Awards is an irreverent celebration of everything political and is attended by MSPs, Scottish MPs and those working across the political landscape in Scotland.

Part of the award-winning Holyrood Communications

Holyrood is Scotland’s fortnightly political and current affairs magazine that keeps people informed with its award-winning and thought-provoking editorial. Holyrood is frequently quoted within the Scottish Parliament as a source of reliable information and political debate. It is the most widely read publication amongst MSPs and is influential in their decision-making (source: Ipsos MORI).
