Since Ewing hasn't actually confirmed that he's going to appear I think readers should only rely on the first four names actually showing up on the day. That said, I'm sure it will be fun.

Keynote Speaker Fergus Ewing (MSP) Scottish Government Minister for Energy, Enterprise & Tourism

Well there's a ragbag of responsibilities, which are all in conflict. The energy policy (100% subsidised renewables) is killing off enterprise and rewarding anybody who is reliant on subsidies. The energy policy (100% wind farms) will kill off tourism. Cognitive Dissonance must be a key requirement of the job.
