Event organisers across Scotland are being asked to deliver more with less.  Budget and staffing restraints mean that events are taking place with shorter lead-in times and fewer resources.  Many organisations rely on succesful events and meetings as a vital part of their business yet, in the face of cost cutting, how can high standards be achieved which not only meet, but exceed, the growing expectations of attendees?
