Exhibition - 2018 Prices Held

The exhibition will be held in areas adjacent to the main conference room. Refreshment breaks will be taken in these areas, so there will be plenty of opportunities throughout the two-day Conference for exhibitors to network directly with delegates.

To maximise delegate interaction, we will be holding a Passport Draw, where one lucky delegate who visits each exhibitor will win a sponsored prize – a number of other sponsorship opportunities are also available to raise the profile of your brand at this prestigious event.

Exhibitor representatives are welcome to take advantage of the CPD seminars running throughout the Conference to gain valuable CPD hours, and may also join delegates at the Annual Conference and Awards dinner for additional networking opportunities.
