Launch of Legends Legacy Network

Published: 13 June 2019

The next evolution of the award winning Ideas Become Legend campaign was announced last night at a dinner hosted by National Museums Scotland attended by 15 organisations across Scotland.

The Legends Legacy Network recognises that collaboration is what makes Scotland the incredible place it is for innovation, research, invention and pioneering spirit.

It will bring together Scotland’s innovation centres, industry representative organisations and research hubs, to utilise Scotland’s business events to enhance Scotland’s inward investment, inclusive growth and global profiling ambitions.

The evening focused on the importance of legacy and collaboration, both nationally and internationally and how the country can connect with international expertise through business events. Legacy is much more than a fun run or a one off public event as part of a conference programme. Incredible talent is brought into Scotland on a weekly basis through business events that Scotland’s sectors can collaborate with, create new networks, encourage investment, look at new perspectives, pool international talent and showcase Scotland as a place where #IdeasBecomeLegend.

The Legends Legacy Network will continue to push and develop on the outstanding work that has already been achieved through the Legends campaign and continue to show that business events are a critical tool for economic and social progress.
