Following the success of 2017's Digital Cities Regional Roadshow, FutureScot is delighted to announce Digital Cities 2018 - a series of policy conferences taking place across Scotland this spring.

Aimed at policy, academic, technology and business leaders the six half-day events will take place in Aberdeen, Dundee & Perth, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Stirling and Inverness in May 2018.

Featuring top keynote speakers from the UK and internationally, our expert-led, panel sessions, will be heavily focused on the proposed outcomes of Scotland's City Region Deals, with a full and frank discussion about the strengths of Scotland's principal cities, but also where added focus is needed on the path to digitalisation.

These events will be an opportunity for policy leaders from local and national government and its agencies, to gather with industry leaders to forge new relationships, overcome existing challenges and refresh their digital thinking.

The outcomes of each event will be featured in a full report, both in a Special Edition FutureScot Magazine, and distributed with The Sunday Times.

Book your place now to take part in FutureScot's Digital Cities 2018 series.

Stirling: 1st May // Aberdeen: 3rd May // Dundee & Perth: 8th May  // Glasgow: 9th May // Edinburgh: 16th May // Inverness: May 30th

Stirling City Region Deal

Negotiations on Stirling's City Deal are currently underway with both the UK and Scottish Government working closely with the city region partners to understand their ambitions and develop proposals to unlock investment and grow the regional economy.  

These proposals include significant investment in housing and transport, the development of a new Stirling Sports Village, a new multi-partnership cultural strategy for the area and a renewed rural economic strategy. 

A new Digital District and cultural quarter for the arts and creative industries are among ambitious proposals to drive the city's digital growth agenda, putting Stirling at the forefront of digital innovation and enterprise both nationally and internationally. 

Join us to discuss the Stirling City Region Deal and its role in creating a smarter, digitalised Scotland. 

For further information about the conference and sponsorship opportunities please contact Vincenzo Veglia at vincenzo@canongate.org or 0131 561 7305.
