We hope you're looking forward to the weekend in Edinburgh and Airth Castle! With only two sleeps left before you all descend on Scotland's capital.

On the morning of the 12th, we will all assemble outside the Scottish Parliament building at 08:45 in time for the opening keynote by Eamon Leonard. Unusually this will be an outdoor keynote - we're looking forward it!

On the 13th you will have breakfast at the castle, and we will depart Airth at 11:30 - making our way back into Edinburgh, to the Surgeons Hall (http://www.surgeonshall.com) in time for lunch at 13:00. Talks will start at 14:00 and we have six to choose from before our closing keynote by Josh Holmes at 17:30.

We're excited, we hope you are too! See you there!
