This event will provide an opportunity to share knowledge, challenge old thinking and orthodoxy and consider new campaigns around a number of crucial topics – from housing to social care, person centred services, natural capital, sustaining impact, community empowerment, ethical finance, inclusive growth and much more.
The Social Enterprise Exchange Marketplace will be held on Tuesday 21 March 2017 in the Corn Exchange, Edinburgh. First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP will deliver the keynote speech.
This dynamic and exciting one day event is a marketplace of over 80 exhibitors and a diverse mix of hundreds of delegates – with many opportunities for trading, learning and making new business connections – helping take Scotland’s brilliant social enterprises forward.
Discussions will create space to build upon the growing understanding of the way in which social enterprise is viewed by the public and private sectors, and capture the energy of consumer-facing social enterprise.
The event will coincide with an exciting, yet challenging, time for Scotland. New powers for The Scottish Parliament, local government elections on the horizon, the implementation of the 10 year Social Enterprise Strategy for Scotland and, of course, the Brexit challenge of UK withdrawal from the European Union.
Where: Corn Exchange, New Market Road, Edinburgh
When: Tuesday, 21 March 2017 (9:30am – 4:30pm)
