Since it was first published in 1817, The Scotsman has been at the heart of the debate about issues that really matter. Almost 200 years later, it is still the national forum for discussion on the topics of the moment, and is right at the heart of the debate on Scotland's constitutional future.

The newspaper - and its successful website - - offer an authoritative space for all shades of opinion to have their say on the challenges and opportunities facing Scotland. Now Scotsman Conferences is bringing the debate alive with high-quality, modern conferences for a modern world.

We continue to deliver a programme of informative and lively debates featuring expert speakers, with a focus on big issues which affect both the public and private sector - most held at our superb venue, The Scottish National Gallery.

Scotsman Conference Format

Unlike traditional conferences, our events run for half a day - because delegates can no longer afford the luxury of a full day away from their desk. They need to keep up-to-date with policy developments and build professional networks, so our sharply-focussed events allow delegates to do both without eating into valuable working time.

Our agendas may be shorter but thanks to The Scotsman’s unrivalled access to a national and UK network of experts, each event attracts the best possible speakers and we build in time for discussion and networking.

The delegate fee is affordable and offers excellent value for money.

Each event is supported by editorial opportunities in The Scotsman as well as online, widening the scope of the debate and offering speakers a national platform.
