Frequently Asked Questions

How many delegates attend the conference?
Generally we have over 160 delegates from across the 32 Scottish Local Authorities. These include the main decision makers for Facilities Management (Catering, Cleaning and Janitorial services) across Scotland.
Why is the exhibition over a single 4 hour period?
We have found that this format works best. The exhibitors receive the full delegate contingent at one time and our delegates are more than happy to spend time with the exhibitors.
Can exhibitors sit in on the seminars?
We are always a little tight for space on the Thursday, but exhibitors are more than welcome to come along to the Friday morning sessions.
Can I attend the conference as a delegate rather than taking a stand?
We are sorry, but you must be part of a stand to attend the conference.
