At this year's Scotland's Towns Conference, Scotland's Towns Partnership and Scotland's Improvement Districts will bring together 150+ senior level stakeholders from across public, private and third sectors, working to support our towns and city districts.

This is a once-a-year chance to get together with national and international place stakeholders; share challenges and opportunities; and to feel inspired and re-energised by the latest thinking, pilots and supports, funding and resources for your place.

We will be hosted in Aberdeen Music Hall by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council. Our principal sponsor is Blachere Illumination. You can see a list of all conference partners and sponsors here

A pre-conference comedy night (19th November) is brought to you by Aberdeen Inspired, direct from Aberdeen International Comedy Festival.
