Over the two days starting from 1.30 pm on Friday 17 May,  we’ll share the stories of inspirational women present and past and find out why the city of Dundee was known as Women’s Town. Now the Scottish city of Design and Discovery and with a famous tradition of  three Js – Jute, Jam and Journalism., home of the publishers DC Thompson, Dundee is a city full of stories.

Delegates will be welcomed at a Civic Reception in the City Chambers on Friday evening  and  have the opportunity to explore Dundee’s industrial and cultural heritage during the event.

On Sunday, there will be organized optional visits to Glamis Castle, 1000 years of history and now a baronial Castle outside Dundee or guided visit to St Andrews, historic University City across the river Tay in Fife, travel by local bus with free guided tour of the city and time to browse the shops in this popular tourist destination.
