MacRoberts announces sponsorship of Social Enterprise World Forum 2018
MacRoberts is delighted to be on board as a sponsor of the Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) in Edinburgh in 2018. Ten years since the first ever event in Edinburgh, CEIS – the founders of SEWF and the organisers of the 2018 event – are set to welcome 1,200 delegates from across the globe to Scotland’s capital.
Angela Constance, Cabinet Secretary, headed a Scottish delegation in Christchurch, New Zealand, on 29 September 2017 to officially accept handover of the event, which will next take place on 12-14 September 2018 at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. At the handover ceremony in Christchurch, CEIS and the British Council launched a video to showcase Scotland’s diverse, vibrant social enterprise sector and introduce Edinburgh as the event’s next host city.
The event in Edinburgh will involve a week-long programme of events to allow delegates to immerse themselves in Scottish culture and the dynamic social enterprise scene. Visitors to Scotland will experience Scotland’s social enterprise community where social enterprises and government work together to tackle inequality, build healthy communities and create vibrant local economies. The event will provide an opportunity for the social enterprise community to collaborate and network in an inspiring and supportive setting.
MacRoberts Partner Duncan Osler, who was also in New Zealand speaking at the Christchurch SEWF 2017, said:
“Having advised CEIS for a number of years, we are delighted to be on board as a sponsor for an event that celebrates and promotes creating a better Scotland through decreasing inequality, tackling poverty head on and energising communities. Any international event in Scotland that promotes and encourages this gets my vote.”
Gerry Higgins, CEO of CEIS, said:
“We could not be happier to have MacRoberts on board as a sponsor for the SEWF 2018. We have enjoyed a great relationship with the firm for a long time and they have supported a number of our initiatives over the years. The SEWF 2018 will be a fantastic opportunity to not only cement this relationship but strengthen it too.”
