National events strategy review: business and regulatory impact assessment - partial

Partial business and regulatory impact assessment (BRIA) for the consultation to help shape the review of Scotland's national events strategy.

10. Digital Impact Test

Digital technologies are a central component of the success of Scotland’s event sector and played a particularly central role during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Continuing to harness the significant potential of digital technologies is likely to be a key element of the National Events Strategy 2025-2035- across all of the headline strategic outcomes. Specific opportunities will be explored further following the conclusion of the public consultation component alongside wider industry engagement.

Broadly, the National Events Strategy 2025-2035 aims to promote and embed the lessons learned on digital event activities, including during the pandemic. It will not prescribe any operational changes nor is it likely to result in any adverse impacts on offline businesses.

The events industry will be central to delivery of the National Events Strategy 2025-2035. Planning to harness the potential of advancing technology over its life will be a matter for the events industry and individual businesses. In partnership with the DigitalBoost team, VisitScotland has created digital skills webinars to support the tourism and events sectors[16].
