The ISES event will take place in April 2016. It will host a VIP group attending IMEX in Frankfurt, Germany, before heading to Scotland for three days of debating and networking.
Attendees will include senior level event industry corporates and professionals from agencies, incentives and sports disciplines across the USA, Canada, the UK and Europe.
VisitScotland recently joined the newly-launched Global Partner Programme, in a bid to connect with the 5,000 international members of ISES.
Kevin White, international president of ISES, said: "This is the first time that an event such as this has taken place and we are grateful for the support of both VisitScotland and IMEX in helping us achieve this ambition. Scotland is a world class destination for events and the perfect location to host such a respected group of industry professionals in 2016."
Neil Brownlee, head of business events at VisitScotland, added: "This event perfectly matches our desire for Scotland to be at the very heart of the global event industry. As well as being able to provide outstanding facilities, service, food and transport Scotland is also working to foster strong relationships across the entire industry.
"We have a highly-valued and active relationship with both ISES and IMEX and are delighted to be hosting this significant event during Scotland’s Year of Innovation, Architecture & Design in 2016."
