Circular Economy

Hotspot Scotland

30 Oct - 1 Nov 2018

Scotland has been selected as this year's host nation for Circular Economy Hotspot #CEHotspotScot - a major international event and trade mission to showcase our nation's progressive approach to developing a circular economy and the best of our burgeoning circular businesses to a global audience.

Hosted by Zero Waste Scotland in Glasgow, the unmissable programme will include visits to pioneering Scottish businesses, sessions led by the country's foremost names in circular economy policy and innovation, and extensive networking opportunities.

The countdown is on...


Building on success of previous years

Following large-scale inaugural events in The Netherlands and Luxembourg, the Hotspot will demonstrate Scotland's award winning progress as a leading circular economy nation on the world stage. It follows global recognition at the World Economic Forum, where Scotland received the award for Circular Economy Nations and Regions in the high profile Circulars Awards in 2017.


The key to a successful Circular Economy Hotspot Scotland will be in collaboration with our stakeholders. If you have a specific enquiry or ideas about becoming involved, you can email us at: If you have already submitted an Expression of Interest for Showcase Collaborations, we will be in touch soon as to the success of your application.
