You will receive a personal programme when you arrive at the event, which will outline your individual agenda. Following the opening Keynote, delegates will be split into four small groups, one for each of the four breakout rooms and sessions will run concurrently. These delegate groups will be mixed up throughout the conference, whilst ensuring that each delegate attends all eight presentations. The order in which you see the managers will differ, however, by the end of the day, all of the delegates will have seen all of the sponsoring groups. The event will conclude at 19:00 and includes time to meet the managers more informally over drinks and canapés.
Please note that the programme content is correct at time of print, however subject to change.
The order in which you will see the groups will differ for each delegate. The running order displayed here is for illustrative purposes only.
