The Gathering is back for 2023

Organised by SCVO, the Gathering is the largest free voluntary sector event in the UK, a place for all the amazing people working in the sector to network, showcase what they do and learn from each other.

Be a part of the Gathering

Over two days on 7 and 8 November 2023, thousands of amazing people from the voluntary sector and beyond will join us at Edinburgh’s EICC to connect, learn and be inspired. 

As well as bringing you a packed programme of workshops, seminars and activities – including online sessions for our most popular events - we’re delighted to share that this year we’re bringing our exhibition back, showcasing a wide range of exhibitors from the voluntary, public and private sectors! 

Pre-registration to visit the Gathering will open in July. Right now you can book an exhibition space - don't miss out on this exciting opportunity to be a part of it all! Applications to host an event at this year's Gathering have now closed.

If you have any questions about the Gathering and how you can be a part of it, get in touch with our Events team who will be happy to help. We can't wait to welcome you!
