EventScotland is working to make Scotland the perfect stage for events. Recognised as a leading force in events delivery, our accomplished track record in hosting mega and major events is world-renowned and recognised when bidding to Federations. Attracting and hosting major sporting events is a competitive business and we face the challenge of not only continually finding new and exciting sporting events to bring to Scotland but also to secure them from other host cities and countries.
In 2020 the sport of climbing will makes its debut at the Tokyo Olympic Games. With our strong traditions in climbing and mountaineering, this was a fantastic opportunity to bring major new events to Scotland, attract a new audience to our country and showcasing the amazing built and natural climbing facilities we have.
Together with Edinburgh Leisure, City of Edinburgh Council, and the British Mountaineering Council, we bid for and secured the IFSC Climbing World Cup (Lead and Speed) and Paraclimbing Cup in Edinburgh at EICA:Ratho – Europe’s largest indoor climbing arena, in September 2017.
It was a resounding success, with the sold out event attracting more than 1,200 spectators, athletes and coaches to Scotland, and demonstrated the power of what can be achieved when an event organiser works with a public body to take a sporting event to the next level.
