The Institute is delighted to announce details of its 2019 Scottish Conference. The Conference is – by popular demand - returning to the Crieff Hydro Hotel, where conference attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy the excellent recreational facilities set in beautiful surroundings.

The theme of this year’s Conference – “Engaging minds, Empowering success” – highlights the emphasis on quality and improvements as themes that run through the delivery of Scottish public services and the subjects discussed and debated at Scottish Conference 2019.

We are delighted to have invited Kate Forbes MSP, Minister for Public Finance and Digital Economy, Scottish Government has been invited to give the Ministerial Address to conference this year. have also invited Ruth Davidson MSP, Leader of the major opposition group in the Scottish Parliament to give an address on an alternative approach to local government finance reform.

In addition to delivering key updates on these big issues and encouraging debate about these, conference will also examine the improved delivery of Scottish public services in a time of financial challenge and will examine how to provide quality services, with an emphasis on continuing improvement into the future. This year’s Conference programme is both wide-ranging and will be of great interest to all who have a role to play in local taxation, valuation, benefits and related fields.

The Institute is again indebted to Scott and Co who are our Overall Conference Sponsor at Crieff 2019.

A key feature of any Conference is the exhibition, which in recent years has grown substantially in both number and range of stands, providing delegates with the opportunity to visit companies specialising in many areas of interest. We are pleased to announce that there will also again be a Scottish Awards Area, where Scottish organisations entered for the IRRV Performance Awards will have the opportunity to showcase their entries.

The afternoon sessions are designed to appeal particularly to those at the ‘sharp end’ of service delivery. Special rates are available for those attending afternoon sessions only, when accompanied by a full or day delegate.

The IRRV Scottish Conference offers outstanding value for money and the Institute is again including excellent delegate offers to encourage attendance. Every fourth delegate (of the same Delegate Rate Type) from the same organisation comes entirely free of charge. Additionally, where an organisation has at least two full delegates (ie Rate A or B), it will be permitted to send up to 4 “half day” delegates to the afternoon sessions only on either day of the Conference for only £160 + VAT.
