Social Enterprise Policy & Practice – Scotland’s Annual Conference

Our annual Social Enterprise Policy & Practice Conference, in partnership with Scottish Government, is an integral part of the social enterprise landscape in Scotland. Each year this social enterprise event highlights the advances and significant learning points of the past year, while looking forward to new social enterprise strategy and initiatives, as social enterprises continue to meet national outcomes.

The event is open to all and over the years has attracted national and international delegates from the social enterprise, private and public sector; as well as government, agency, intermediary and academic representatives, who all have a vested interest in the sector.

The event showcases the best in sector nationally, exploring challenges and solutions through keynote presentations and practical workshop sessions and also offers key networking and trading space in our adjoining exhibition.

International guests are often invited to present their business models to further support learning and awareness.
