About Edge 2011

Thursday, 03 March 2011 – Friday, 04 March 2011, Edinburgh

EDGE 2011 brings the best speakers to Edinburgh once again!

These are exciting times for councils embarking on ambitious transformation programmes and the intensity of challenge lies in delivering excellence for customers while reducing costs.

Technology is changing service delivery fast, customers want more and different and will continue to do so. We need to be ready for the pace of change of the next ten years and how we will have to change the face of council services.

Our chosen speakers will demonstrate how they have used their vision, creative and innovative thinking to deliver excellence and efficiencies.  This opportunity comes at a time where cost-efficient and effective outcomes are paramount.

Who should attend?

EDGE 2011 is a must for Chief Executives, Directors, Heads of E-Government, senior policy and decision makers, library professionals and elected members.

EDGE 2011 will provide many opportunities to learn from and meet with speakers, decision makers and other practitioners in the field, change managers, thought leaders, and many movers and shakers in the information, content management, community engagement and regeneration communities.

Attending this conference will provide you with the opportunity to find out first hand how others are making the savings required, by using shared services to build outstanding buildings, regenerate social deprivation areas, whilst continually moving forward at less cost with better services.

Invest in yourself and the future of your organisation by attending our second ground-breaking conference in one of the most beautiful capital cities in the world – Edinburgh.

What are we aiming for?

To make our businesses and services edgier, smarter, more creative and cost effective in a world that is being transformed by digital and social technologies.

To learn how libraries and information are delivering regeneration, e-government, learning and digital inclusion.

To hear the latest ideas, share success stories, hear best practices and meet colleagues from across the country and around the world.

To open a platform for discussion on the future of service delivery in libraries and information.

To offer a platform for new innovations and technologies

This is likely to be one of the most exciting conferences to be held in Scotland in 2011 and for those who attended EDGE 2010, you know it will be a conference to remember!!

The Venue

The Caledonian Hotel, Princes Street, Edinburgh, EH1 2AB, once a grand railway hotel, has stood on the same spot since 1903.  Built in red sandstone from the west of Scotland and to the design of many Glasgow buildings, it was kindly known as “the grand Glasgow lady, come to Edinburgh”.
