Alzheimer Scotland Annual Conference – 3 June 2016 – Global to local: research, practice, innovation

Alzheimer Scotland’s annual conference will bring together 550 delegates at the world-class Edinburgh International Conference Centre, for an innovative programme with key international, national and Scottish speakers.

This year’s conference will explore the theme Global to local: research, practice, innovation, via a variety of plenary and parallel sessions, as well as featuring our largest dedicated exhibition space, which will also host all the conference catering, ensuring all 30+ exhibitors’ benefit from maximum exposure throughout multiple breaks during the conference.

Delegates include people with dementia, carers, policy makers, national and local government staff, academics, health and care professionals, staff from Alzheimer and dementia associations, along with representatives from the pharmaceutical industry, financial, legal, property and technology sectors.

With all the wonderful opportunities to learn and share from colleagues, the conference is also a great way to add to your Continuing professional development hours.

  • I really enjoyed the annual conference in 2015. The SDWG had an exhibition spot and we got to chat with other conference goers. The workshops I attended were really useful and I took away a lot of valuable information. I would definitely look to attend in 2016.

  • This is an unmissable event for us. Where else can you have conversations with policy makers, funders, academics, carers and care providers, and people with a diagnosis of dementia in the one event?
