Places are filling up for this year’s SAOS Conference on 31 Jan. Book now!

This year’s SAOS Conference which will focus on ‘Promoting Innovation Through Co-operation’, takes place on Jan 31st at Dunblane Hydro, and is looking to be our best and biggest ever.

We have a really excellent programme looking at innovation, with a mix of stimulating presentations and speakers, including an address by Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy, Fergus Ewing MSP, who will also take questions from the audience in the afternoon session.

The contributors to our afternoon panel session, which always provides a great debate, this year are:

Ian Cruickshank, Chairman, Aberdeen Grain
John Gregor, Executive Director, ANM Group
Suzanne George, Board Director, Growers Garden
Alan Stevenson, Supply Chain Development Director, SAOS

We have secured larger rooms for all the sessions this year, so we have no shortage of space and we’re really looking to encourage a great turnout.

  • Once again we have a number of free ‘Next Generation’ places for co-op staff/members aged under 40 who are first time conference attendees.
  • Any co-op with four or more attendees for the full 24-hour package gets a reduced rate.
  • This year we are also offering two free places to member co-ops who have not had members attend our conference previously.

We know that once members attend and get the benefit of the experience, they tend to keep coming, so we’d really like more co-ops and members to get involved.

To confirm details/eligibility of these offers, please contact, otherwise please download and send in your booking form.
