THE annual business Aberdeen-Houston Gateway event is to go-ahead online.
It comes after the Covid-19 pandemic led organisers Granite PR to re-think the traditional format.
The event, which is in its eighth year, will take place next month embracing technology and adopting an all-new digital format.
Replacing the traditional visits, meetings and showcase lunch with speakers in Aberdeen will be a series of free podcasts, webinars and online discussions which will be aired during week commencing May 4th, giving a unique opportunity for delegates to come together and do business in a virtual way.
Brett Jackson, Granite PR founder and managing director, said: “The event has never stood still and its evolution has been motivated by many factors – this year circumstances have led us to embrace new digital opportunities in an exciting, accelerated way.
“We are indebted to our sponsors who have jumped on board the new format and we are very grateful to them for their support as we bring this new concept to fruition.”
It will be held in association with the Greater Houston Partnership and G-Tech Innovation Centre supported by the Energy Industries Council (EIC) and Scottish Development International (SDI).
