Remote Participation – A Guide to Streaming Events for Orkney’s Festivals and Visitor Attractions

For many festivals and visitor attractions, location is probably the greatest asset, with Orkney unquestionably having an enviable international profile. Sadly though, the past year has demonstrated just what can happen when accessing the greatest asset becomes the greatest challenge? With reference to inspiring examples from Scotland and further afield, XpoNorth's Digital Sector Specialist Dougal Perman, director of Inner Ear will present a seminar for Orcadian festivals and visitor attractions on just what is possible. As one of Scotland’s leading experts in remote participation and streaming events, he will look at what you need to think about, the kind of equipment and platforms needed, what audiences will expect and how to get a return on your investment.

XpoNorth in partnership with Orkney Islands Council are putting on two free online sessions aimed at festivals and visitor attractions on the Orkney Islands. These are looking at two hugely important areas of interest – The Crowd Economy and Remote participation/streaming events.
