OVERVIEW View Conference Agenda

Conference places are limited and by invitation only.  If you would like to attend please register your interest by contacting Gail on 0131 556 1500 or email  We cannot guarantee a delegate place based on registering an interest but we will reply as early as possible to let you know if we are able to include you as a delegate.

This conference will draw together an audience of core decision and policy makers from across the public, private and third sectors in the City. The aim is to both communicate the Council’s strategy across a range of areas and to engage Edinburgh beyond the council in a shared discussion on how to collaborate to build a prosperous and successful city.

Speakers and delegates will address fresh thinking and innovation on how Edinburgh's leading public and private sector bodies can work together, what Edinburgh needs to to do to compete effectively with other cities and which ideas contain the opportunity to sustain Edinburgh's future strength.
