As well as hearing keynote speakers, including Scotland’s Minister for Business, Energy and Tourism Mr Fergus Ewing, delegates will be treated to whisky tastings, a gala dinner at Edinburgh Castle – and a visit to the giant pandas at Edinburgh Zoo.
SELECT’s managing director, Newell McGuiness (pictured), who addressed the AIE’s prestigious event in Slovenia last year, said: ‘It is a great honour to be able to welcome these major, multi-national organisations to Scotland.
‘The electrical industry is more vital than ever to economies around the world and we have lined up a programme that is innovative and informative, as well as planning to show our guests some of the highlights of our beautiful country.’
The summit will start in true Scottish style on Wednesday September 9th with a golf tournament at Gullane Golf Club, followed by a civic reception at the City Chambers in Edinburgh. The following day, as delegates engage in the business of the summit, partners will be entertained with a visit to romantic Dryburgh Abbey and Sir Walter Scott’s former home and gardens at Abbotsford House. The evening will be rounded off with a whisky masterclass.
On September 11th, the business will include a conference where speakers will include Mr Jonathan Astwood, head of practice unit, of the Building Standards Division, and Mr Rudi Klein, chief executive of the Specialist Engineering Contractors’ Group, who will speak on Re-engineering Construction Procurement
