Notice - Postponement of Scotland's Towns Conference 2020


In adaptating our programme of activities in response to coronavirus, Scotland's Towns Partnership has taken the decision not to run our annual Scotland's Towns Conference in 2020, and will instead examine conference plans for 2021 at the appropriate time.

We are currently focusing on running online webinars to support all stakeholders of Scotland's towns, and spearheading a campaign to encourage the public to support local businesses while taking care and following public health guidelines.

About Scotland's Towns Conference


Scotland's Towns Conference is our annual, flagship gathering of stakeholders from across sectors involved in supporting Scotland's towns and improvement districts. 

Taking place during Scotland's Towns Week, 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. 

2019's conference was hosted in Aberdeen Music Hall by Aberdeen City Council and Aberdeenshire Council. Our principal sponsor was Blachere Illumination. You can view a photo gallery and online event report of the conference here

You can also view multi-media reports of our annual conferences from previous years at our Wakelet page

Taking place at the BT Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh during Scotland's Towns Week, the summit brought together 'place leaders' from across Scotland's geography and sectors to discuss how to implement the Place Principle and help support thriving, inclusive communities.
