Pre-registration for either stream is required and spaces are limited to one place per organisation, so will operate on a first come, first served basis. Any additional requests will be added to a waiting list in case of cancellation. Delegates who register for streams are also welcome to attend the main conference programme.

Registration: As with last year we are waiving the registration fee for all members! The only cost is your accommodation, which is £110 per night inc. VAT.

However, please book early, as the conference is always popular as our flagship event and we ran out of all accommodation last year, resulting in delegates needing to find alternative accommodation themselves. Booking early really helps the committee deliver a top quality exciting event!
