The WeDO Scotland Annual Conference is one of the flagship events in our calendar and year-on-year, we strive to bring our members and guests a conference which will bring real benefits and add value to their businesses.  The Conference is one of only 2 events we host annually which are open to non-members as well as members.  We have once again this year attracted an extremely high calibre of speakers as well as fantastic hosts to run our workshops.

There are a limited number of Early Bird tickets available to both members of WeDO and non-members and we anticipate that these allocations will sell out quickly.  In light of our support of the next generation of potential entrepreneurs, we also have a small number of discounted tickets available for full-time students.  Please note that .ed.uk email addresses must be used when purchasing Student tickets.
