Highlands & Islands

SCDI-HI50banner-webSCDI’s membership in the Highlands & Islands region has a broad sectoral and geographic spread and with members of course being part of SCDI’s membership as a whole, this enables immediate access for these organisations and individuals to Scottish, UK and global networks. 

SCDI opened its first Inverness office in 1965 - and so we marked our 50th year in Inverness during 2015 - with the aim of supporting a strong and vibrant economy for the Highlands & Islands, and Scotland, and a commitment to the growth and development of the region. 

SCDI organises an active engagement programme across the Highlands & Islands, with numerous Influencers’ Series dinners and other member engagement and networking events delivered, including the highlight of the business calendar - the SCDI Highlands & Islands Business Excellence Awards & Annual Dinner – which is held each September in Inverness to recognise and celebrate the successes of businesses in the Highlands & Islands region.
