MEDIA RELEASE: New dates announced for VISION SCOTLAND 2021

For Release 18:00
24 February 2021

In December 2020 Screen Facilities Scotland (SFS) officially launched Vision Scotland, a dedicated screen and media production industry exhibition and trade event showcasing Scotland’s creative production, services, facilities, and skilled professionals to the global industry, originally scheduled for 6 & 7 May 2021

Further to the political announcements from both the UK and Scottish Governments earlier this week, further delaying a full return to work for many of our industry partners and colleagues involved in the management and presentation of the event, we have consulted with the exhibitors already in place, the members of our working group and our team of Directors and decided to move the event dates back to 9th & 10th September.

Vision Scotland now takes place over two days on Thursday 9 and Friday 10 September 2021. It remains a digital only event taking place online and the majority of the event content (less the interactive live-streamed elements) shall be available online and accessible to registered visitors for six months after the live event.

Vision Scotland’s first full physical and live event will take place next year…..dates/venue to be confirmed in due course.

The event is aimed at all screen and media production professionals in all specialisms and locations. Registration is free for industry professionals to attend and there is also an allocation of tickets for students of screen and media production art and skill subjects. Registration has been officially open from Tuesday 15 December 2020.

Notes to Editors:


SFS became a formal co-operative venture after winning the Co-operative Development Scotland Collaboration Prize in 2012. Since then, SFS has become a focus point for its member companies and a central point of contact for the wider industry, potential clients, government, public agencies, and other organisations.

SFS’ main activities are to promote member companies, develop new business, engage in industry knowledge transfer and advocacy, contribute to research and consultations, and be a unified voice for the services and facilities sub sector.

SFS has evolved as a visible and influential entity, and has formal presence and contribution at key events, including festivals, conferences, exhibitions, expos, and other industry activities.

SFS won Screen Production Association of the Year 2020 for developing the concept of Vision Scotland as a digital trade event for the sector they represent, moving their member activities and communications swiftly to digital during the sudden global pandemic, and collaboratively producing a promotional advert to showcase the screen talent in Scotland to help the sector bounce back from the production crisis felt by the event of the COVID-19 outbreak.
