Surgeries (one-to-one)

This year, our speakers will be available for one-to-one surgery appointments when they are not giving their seminar. We have also invited a variety of additional industry experts who will also be available for these surgeries throughout the day. Surgeries will run from 11.15-3.15 in a breakaway room whilst the seminars are taking place in the conference room - giving delegates the flexibility to really tailor the day to their business. Delegates can book a maximum of 2 surgeries per business which will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. To book your surgeries, please email our conference coordinator or call her on 01235 770078.
