What else to expect

As well as bringing industry leading speakers to your doorstep, the day also allows for dedicated networking time.
We all know networking is a vital part of working in our industry, but as busy professionals we can struggle to find the time to do this effectively. With this in mind, time is set aside to give you a chance to make new contacts and catch up with peers.

For those who book to attend the full day, a two-course hot lunch is included in ticket price.
