Here are five reasons why you should attend this year’s event:
- Hear Jeremy Sainsbury OBE from Natural Power talk about the future of rural housing

- Network with colleagues, old and new, from all over Scotland
This year’s conference takes place on 31 October and 1 November, with the pre-conference showcase talking place on 30 October. The conference will be held over two venues, with the meeting and dinner at Easterbrook Hall and accommodation at the Holiday Inn, Dumfries, which is adjacent to the conference venue.
