A unique opportunity to join your peers to lead and shape the BIMA Digital Community in Scotland, hosted by Nat Gross, BIMA President and Gerry McCusker, BIMA Chair of Scotland.

These private dinners are designed for board directors of digital agencies in the UK and leading players shaping UK digital. We figured that, setting aside the competitive nature of business, there's a lot we can gain by being better connected with each other, too. Just a group of 10 or so people with shared interests and challenges, having an off-the-record chat in a private dining room with some delicious food. BIMA runs these events across the country but this is Glasgow’s first and a crucial time to join in and share your ideas with BIMA Chair- Scotland, Gerry McCusker to prioritise BIMA events, activities and initiatives to help drive excellence among Scotland’s innovative digital community.

The Dinner

Held in the private dining room at the beautiful Hutcheson Bar & Brasserie in Merchant City, the cost for the evening includes pre-dinner drinks, a beautiful three-course meal, wine to help keep conversation flowing, after dinner tea and coffee plus superb company.

Places are limited. We suggest booking ASAP to avoid disappointment.
