Conference Programme

Exhibition Banner 18

This year’s speakers will present on a range of business and individual development-related subjects, alongside a detailed technical programme – the content of which has been chosen to promote debate and challenge convention. This year once again, we will incorporate a panel-led debate on what professional bodies and their members need to do to respond to new ways of working. In total, the programme will include over ten hours of technical content from government and industry experts.
