And on that note, the next networking event is on Monday the 20th February at ACT Aberdeen – 6.30pm for 7pm.

“SPECTRA, Aberdeen’s Festival of Light is now in its 4th year.
The vision for SPECTRA was to be a signature winter event for the region and beyond, a high-end forum with which the city can profile itself distinctively in the area of light and creativity, recognising Aberdeen as a contemporary city of design and technology with a strong cultural heritage.”
