For our next networking nights:
- Tuesday, 18th June: Edinburgh, Edinburgh International Climbing Arena
Join all of us here at Your Event Scotland for one of our most exciting networking nights yet! Held at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena, attendees have the chance to prove they’re not just at the peak of their profession, but also at the top of the their climbing game with a chance to scale the walls. Although if you have an incredible fear of heights (like some of us in the office!), feel free to keep us company safely on the ground while cheering everyone on.
Let the YES team look after you with introductions, drinks (much deserved after you’ve climbed) and nibbles.
No set agenda so arrive at any time between 6:30 and 8:30pm (ish)! No need to rush off either, as networkers have been known to continue far into the evening. Edinburgh currently holds the record with a grand finish at 11:15pm, let’s see if we can out do ourselves!
Tickets cost £20 for those who want to climb (remember to bring your gear if you do!), and £10 for non-climbers.
As usual, advertising clients of Your Event Scotland recieve a free ticket to the networking night (by registering your interest at firstname.lastname@example.org), or a half price ticket of £10 if they wish to climb

Bubbles @ The Balmoral Fundraiser for Enable Scotland
In August 2012 Your Event Scotland held a very successful networking night known as the bubbly bonanza, where guests took part in a blind taste test of champagne. Since the owner of the company June Ross is a committee member of Enable Edinburgh one thing lead to another and enable ended up loving the idea and wanted to recreate the concept at a fundraising event.
So on Thursday 9th May Your Event Scotland girls enjoyed the sumptuous surroundings of the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh. They enjoyed a champagne reception and delicious Mediterranean tapas cuisine. During the course of the evening guests took part in a champagne tasting experience The YES Girls were sadly runners up and missed out on winning a crate of champagne. The night raised £9,200 towards enable Scotland.
ENABLE Scotland is a dynamic charity run by its members. They campaign for a better life for children and adults with learning disabilities. Supporting people who have learning disabilities and their families to live, work and take part in their communities. Enable Scotland provides a growing range of person centred services designed to be flexible and adapt to the needs of the people using these services.
Maggie’s Golf Day, Inverness
Your Event Scotland was proud to take part in Maggie’s fundraising golf day. The entire day raised over £37,000 for the amazing work that Maggie’s does in order to support cancer victims, family and friends.
The day consisted of a round of golf at Castle Stuart where YES is delighted to announce that we had the first ever all girls golf team! Consisting of Joanna D’Onghia, Fiona Hay, Vicky Riddell, and Yvonne Moir (as pictured in pink from left to right above), the girls came in 11th place! We’re very proud!! Yvonne even out drove the boys with the longest yard!
Later on, the ‘YES Girls’ theme was followed by the only all girls dinner table at the Drumossie Hotel where we heard some of the most breath-taking stories of how Maggie’s has truly helped their patients.

The Baggy Eyed Ball, Glasgow
The Baggy Eyed Ball was a resounding success (especially if the baggy eyes the next day were anything to go by!) Baillie’s Marquees, Synergy Events and Your Event Scotland came together to produce a fantastic event. After June Ross of YES introduced the night with her keynote speech, guests enjoyed an evening of wonderful catering, entertainment and company! The room was exquisitely decorated and made for the perfect backdrop against which a night of networking took place. Event professionals from across Scotland enjoyed making new business associates while reconnecting with old ones. The generosity of spirit also evidenced during the evening meant that a great deal of money was raised for the Glasgow based charity SPIRIT Aid. There were some fantastic raffle and auction prizes available, with one guest at the Your Event Scotland table even winning a walk on part in River City! (He even offered to double the bid if he could play a villain!)
Here at YES we were delighted to see many familiar faces as well as being excited about all the new ones!
