XpoNorth is Highlands and Islands Enterprise’s year-round support mechanism for creative industry companies based across the region.

The project offers a range of programs aimed at encouraging growth and innovation in the sector.

Alex Smith, Project Manager at XpoNorth, said: “Last year our first digital edition of the conference brought together over 6,000 people, making it the largest conference in Scotland at the time.

“With the superb caliber of speakers we have planned for this year, coupled with significantly improved interactivity and a wider range of sessions incorporating wellness and hands-on business support, I am confident this conference year will be the busiest to date. The opportunities available to learn from some of the best in the creative industry, network with peers, and come together to discuss new ways of working in this time of accelerated change are not to be missed.

The Highland-based Elephant Sessions Quintet will perform songs from their award-winning albums at the conference afterparty.
