Scotland Excel Conference 2020 – Inclusive Growth


Inclusive growth has been a feature of the Scottish Government’s Economic Strategy for the past five years, with governments across the globe agreeing that it can help address some of society’s most pressing challenges.

But what does it mean at a practical level?         

We have chosen inclusive growth as the theme of our 2020 conference to look at growth priorities and what local organisations can do to support this agenda.  In particular, the conference will consider how public procurement can act as key driver of local economic growth.

Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from expert speakers and participate in practice focused workshops.  The conference will aim to bring together local economic development and procurement professionals to unpack strategies and plans, examine best practice and foster collaborative working. 

The conference will take place on Thursday 20th and Friday 21st February at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.  Further details of our packed agenda can be viewed on the conference website at
