This is a not-for-profit event, so costs for delegates will be kept as low as possible. They are hoping to be able to offer tickets for £120 per delegate, but a final cost will be updated in the New Year.


Please be aware there are limited spaces for this event in order to provide an exclusive, high impact forum for discussion and feedback from the experts.
