The Access to Sport and Culture (ASC) Edinburgh Conference
This is an annual event where your work and your organisation's plans take centre court.
Last year's event took place on Tuesday, 25 September 2012 and focused on Positive Destinations for young people and Looked After Children as part of the Edinburgh Guarantee initiative. The event also gave organisations an opportunity to make a short pitch about a project or service they wanted to promote or would like partners for.
Each year over 100 different organisations, agencies, groups and clubs attend, and fantastic partnerships have already been established. 97% of attendees in previous years found at least one or more new partners of value to their business.
