Seminar objectives

This seminar remains at the forefront of the delivery of innovative service solutions which assist the public sector particularly Councils to meet the many diverse and demanding challenges they face. This annual seminar goes from strength to strength. This reflects APSE’s membership commitment to delivering excellence in public services, even in an era of significant financial constraint.

During times of increasing challenges and with growing demands being placed upon the local government sector, APSE’s Aviemore event provides a genuine opportunity for like minded elected members, officers and suppliers to come together and look collectively at how they can share best practice and implement innovative service solutions.
