Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness
The inaugural Scottish Highlands and Islands Rural Economy conference - the SHIREs Conference - has been created to celebrate our modern rural economy. The event will take place in the afternoon before the first annual Scottish Highlands and Islands Rural Economy Awards – The SHIREs.
Both events will be held on Thursday, 21 November in the Kingsmills Hotel, Inverness.
What is the SHIREs Conference all about?
The SHIREs Conference is an event for everyone who is 'Proud to be Rural' and proud to be part of modern rural Scotland - a vibrant place with the potential to drive the country's economy forward.
The Conference will be of interest to anyone with a stake in our rural economy, and the initiatives which are helping to drive it forward as a recognisable, distinct and hugely important part of the overall Scottish economy.
