Auditoriums Meet

New experiences, new destinations – the world’s leading entertainment venues Meet in Edinburgh

Last week, representatives of the world’s leading concert halls, arenas, theatres, festivals and performance spaces convened in Edinburgh for AuditoriumsMeet 2012.

The second annual gathering for owners, operators and developers of live entertainment venues, AuditoriumsMeet 2012 was hosted at the newly-restored Assembly Rooms; the spectacular Category A listed building located in Edinburgh’s New Town.

Who was there? Delegates from venues and venue business in Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Norway, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the United States, as well as from across the UK, travelled to Edinburgh to explore the essential business trends and market dynamics of live entertainment venues.

In addition to a world-class conference programme, featuring insight and case studies from Cirque du Soleil, Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, The Hydro, the Royal Albert Hall and many more world-leading entertainment organisations, delegates were treated to an exclusive ‘behind the scenes’ tour of Edinburgh’s Arts Quarter venues, including the Traverse Theatre, the Royal Lyceum Theatre, and the Usher Hall.

The AuditoriumsMeet team once again thanks all delegates for joining us at the second annual Meet.

Special thanks, too, to all the speakers, moderators and panellists that helped make the event a resounding success.

And finally, thanks also to the teams at the Traverse Theatre, the Royal Lyceum Theatre, and the Usher Hall for generously opening their doors, and affording delegates an access-all-areas pass to view their venue’s operations… at times just mins before performances were set to start!
