Breakouts and lunchbites
In 2017, we introduced breakout sessions to complement the main conference programme. These sessions offer smaller groups the chance to explore the latest issues and trends within a more informal and relaxed setting. Hugely popular, we are once again running breakouts at our 2018 conference. Our Lunchbite programme is back too – delegates will be offered the chance to hear insights and presentations from a number of conference contributors during the lunch break.
