Jones Lang LaSalle Sponsors Scottish Property Federation Conference

Edinburgh, 03 October 2011 Jones Lang LaSalle has announced that it is sponsoring this year’s Scottish Property Federation Autumn Conference.

Held at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh on 27th October, the Autumn Conference will focus on ‘Bringing Business to Scotland’, examining the way in which governments and businesses are seeking to spark the economy back into life. The Scottish Property Federation will seek to highlight not just the challenging ‘big picture’ that affects Scotland’s business prospects, but also those businesses who are actively seeking to expand in Scotland.

The Conference speaking line-up will include John Mason, Director for Business at the Scottish Government, who is responsible among other duties for the new enterprise areas to be introduced in Scotland; John Rendall, CEO-Scotland, HSBC; Dave Anderson, City of Edinburgh Council; as well as key contributions from Chris Templeman, Head of Property Development - North, Sainsbury’s, British Land, CBI Scotland and Scottish Development International.  Adding high profile and expert insight, the half day event will be facilitated by BBC Scotland’s business & economy editor Douglas Fraser.
Other conference sponsors include Miller Developments, Scottish Widows Investment Partnership, Jones Lang LaSalle and McGrigors.

Alasdair Humphery, Head of Scotland for Jones Lang LaSalle, said:

“Jones Lang LaSalle is pleased to be sponsoring the Autumn conference, at a time when our business is going through a merger to further strengthen our position as Scotland’s leading property advisory firm. With representation from across government, the public and private sectors, the speakers at this year’s event are sure to offer some fascinating insights into Scotland’s commercial property market in the context of ongoing economic uncertainty. The market undoubtedly remains challenging, but we believe that Scotland remains an attractive place to do business.”
