Xpo North - Creative Industries Conference


The annual Inverness-based conference and showcase festival, formerly known as goNORTH, takes place over two exciting and energising days and nights in the Highland Capital. A unique event in the creative calendar, XpoNorth is the only festival of its kind in Scotland covering craft, fashion and textiles; writing and publishing; screen and broadcast; digital and technology and music.

The conference element of the festival will return to Eden Court Theatre and Cinema and the live showcase programme will take place across several city centre venues.

By day, XpoNorth hosts a packed programme of seminars and workshops featuring leading creative industry professionals from across the international marketplace. By night, the festival sets the city alight with creativity, from the event’s firmly established new music showcase soundtracking a host of city centre venues with over 60 of the hottest new acts around, to a specially curated short film programme and a range of relaxed networking events and parties.

Taking place across the 27th and 28th June in Inverness at Eden Court Theatre and Cinema, this year’s edition of XpoNorth will again see a broad range of leading figures from across the national and international creative industries gather to deliver a diverse and inspiring programme looking at the key themes and trends affecting and shaping the current industry landscape. 

Providing a platform for new talent and technology remains at the heart of the festival and the conference will be laced with new work from a number of designers, filmmakers and writers - in addition to our firmly established new music showcase which will see over 60 of the hottest new music acts perform across several city centre venues. 

Free Delegate Registration along with Music and Film Submissions are open now on our website
