Our top priority at this year's conference is the safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff. We'll be following government guidance closely over the coming months and as standard we will have hand sanitising stations at regular points around the conference. Depending on the guidelines at the time there may be some social distancing measures in place as well as mandatory facemasks. As we get closer to the event we'll update you on the conference safety precautions in place so you're fully prepared for conference.
