AGI Scotland are pleased to announce that registration is now open for our forthcoming Annual Event taking place on 23rd/24th February 2021.

Click here for a copy of the full programme, including timings.

This event will happen over two half-days which is a change from our usual format but is intended to allow for a better work-life balance in the current situation.  We will also be running a social ‘virtual team pub quiz’ on the 23rd February at 19:00.

The theme for this year’s conference is “Working Better, Together”.

Collaboration is vital to meeting the increasingly complex challenges we face and at this year’s conference we will be exploring some of the ways the GI community in Scotland (and beyond) are working together in new and innovative ways to address some of the key challenges facing the industry and broader society.

We will be using the Remo platform to host the event, providing opportunities for real-time and face-to-face networking and interaction with conference participants.
