The Scotland Excel conference

20/02/20 (All day) to 21/02/20 (All day)

Venue: Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow

The Scotland Excel Conference was established in 2009 as a platform for local authority procurement professionals to come together to learn and share best practice. From small beginnings, it has expanded to encompass a broad selection of topics relating to the delivery of public services, and has attracted expert speakers from a variety of sectors.

This year, our conference theme is ‘inclusive growth’.  For the first time, we are opening up attendance to delegates from across local authorities and other public or third sector organisations that share an interest in local development.  

Scotland Excel’s Inclusive Growth conference brings together an exciting roster of speakers who can provide an overview of the latest thinking or have had first-hand experience of translating policy into practice. The programme includes a presentation from Alistair Kerr, Chair of BASE Scotland, on the social business perspective.

With a combined total, annual spend of approximately £6.5bn, local authorities have the means to drive forward inclusive growth in towns, cities and rural areas.
