The Transformation Protocol is a unique initiative led by VisitScotland Business Events that connects business events coming to Scotland with national partner organisations.

This initiative enables business events' organisers or Scottish stakeholders to connect with a wide variety of organisations and policy makers including our national Innovation Centres, academic research units, third sector groups, leading industry bodies, Scottish government agencies, investment groups and even with Scottish Government directorates.

Scotland has a lot to share with the world and there is a lot we can learn too. Business events attract experts from around the world, thought leaders, academics, and pioneers. The Transformation Protocol helps connect those delegates with partner organisations in Scotland so that the opportunity to forge those new relationships is not missed. It works by drawing in other partners who might not normally be involved or attend events. This is the crucial area where we can ensure that business events are truly catalysts for social and economic change, by ensuring we take that opportunity when it visits us.

Together we can break out of the auditorium and ensure business events become the change agents we know they can be. Whatever the subject, from data to medicine, renewables to robotics - there is a partnership in Scotland waiting to be made.
