 Feedback sheets illustrate how successful last year's conference was, with some delegates having to stay at another hotel for one night, and over 150 delegates attending.

This is why, yet again, we have had to find a new hotel capable of dealing with an increase in delegates

If you are interested in the changes these new Codes, Standards and Regulations, and how other developments will effect your system 'You simply can't afford to miss this one!'
