Details for the 2024 Scottish Student Sport Conference

The 2024 Scottish Student Sport Conference, powered by Technogym, will take place on 12th-13th June at Stirling Court Hotel.

Always a highlight of the SSS calendar, the conference brings together our community to network, share practice and celebrate the success of student sport. For the first time, we’re inviting SGBs and decision makers from across Scottish sport on Wednesday 12th to put students in the spotlight, and promote closer collaboration.

Wednesday night will see our ever-popular SSS Awards Night with all the information about categories and nominations to come soon!

Thursday’s agenda will feature voices from across the SSS network, including the Sabbatical Officer Group who will be sharing early findings from their cost of living student survey.

Sign up is now open via the links below. One day, two day and awards packages are all available, alongside accommodation options at the Stirling Court Hotel.
