15th  -16th September 2022

One of our main objectives here at Solace is to provide local government and public sector professionals with opportunities to come together, learn from one another and discuss ideas that can help to better the sector. As part of our 2022 programme of events, this year’s Scotland Conference provides the opportunity do just that.

Come together with like-minded professionals for our 2 day learning event, hosted this year in Edinburgh at the iconic Murrayfield Stadium.

We will hear from excellent speakers, experts and leaders in their own fields – the conversations, debates and ideas that we share over the two days of this conference will help shape new examples of best practice.

This year, we will be discussing the Scottish landscape and exploring questions such as:

What does the future hold over the next 2-3 years?

What does that mean for our places, communities and us?

We will be focusing on the following three themes:

  • Education Reform
  • Finance
  • National Care Service

Supporting the next generation of leaders

Bring along a rising star

The conference will not only be an opportunity for senior leaders, but a real opportunity to introduce future leaders and rising stars from within your organisation.

If you are a chief executive, we are sure you are always on the look-out for the next generation of leadership rising through the ranks – motivated, passionate individuals with an aptitude for management and a commitment to the sector. We believe it is vitally important to recognise and nurture these rising stars.

As part of the Solace Scotland Conference ’22 we are inviting you to bring a rising star with you at no additional charge* for the entire conference. This includes the conference dinner on the evening of the 15th September.

Please provide us with the details of your Rising Star via the button below.

More than a conference...

In addition to our incredible line-up of speakers, there will plenty of opportunities for networking at the event.

The first day of the event will end with the fabulous Scotland dinner and drinks reception, at which you can take a moment to relax and chat with colleagues and new friends.

A networking lunch on day 2 will offer a chance to solidify new connections in an informal setting.

Plus, of course, we will have our usual exhibition space, featuring companies from both the public and private sector whose products and services have been designed to enhance local government services and administration.
