Scotland – where ideas become legend
Scotland is a progressive nation built on dynamism, creativity and the warmth of its people (and sometimes its weather)! Scotland is currently a part of the United Kingdom (UK) and occupies the northern third of Great Britain. Scotland’s mainland shares a border with England to the south. It is home to almost 800 small islands, including the northern isles of Shetland and Orkney, the Hebrides, Arran and Skye. Scotland may be small, but we punch well above our weight as we hold many treasures crammed in our compact territory – big skies, ancient architecture, spectacular wildlife, superb seafood and hospitable, down-to-earth people.
We’re a friendly, passionate and innovative country and you’ll see that clearly everywhere you go. EMS 2020 will boast a spectacular programme of speakers and workshops and the opportunity to explore all that EMS has to offer, so you can ensure to have an unforgettable congress while in Scotland.
Now is a great time to visit as Glasgow is set to host EMS2020 and it’s easy to see why Scotland is the #perfectstage to be our host. Scotland is known as an international force for good in terms of its diaspora and as a country that extends a welcoming hand to all people who want to contribute to our society.
