Early Registration and Drinks Reception

On the Sunday 4th September we will be giving you the chance to register early for the conference from 5:30pm - 7:30pm at the conference venue, Park Inn by Radisson, York.

Also between 6:30pm - 8:00pm we will be serving welcome drinks and light bites at the conference venue, so why not head over to register, meet old friends and new colleagues enjoying a nice drink and river views.

Social Trip

On the evening of Monday 5th September, there will be an additional social event. This will feature a Pleasure Cruise on the River Ouse in the beautiful historical town of York.

A delightful two hour's cruise on the river Ouse with an informative captain's commentary is a great opportunity to admire York, network, dine and relax. We will meet in the hotel reception at 6:20pm for a prompt 6:30pm departure. At 6.45pm we will board two boats: the River Palace and the Captain James Cook. Sailing at 7pm until 9pm the cruise is the best way to discover the city and end your evening there.

Subsidised by KES International, tickets for the trip will cost only £25 Pounds per person (including Captain's buffet/ glass of wine and commentary)

Places are limited, so if you wish to attend please register via the link that will be, in due course, sent to all registered delegates in an email and payment in cash will be due on your arrival at the registration desk at the conference. *

*Please note, by registering to attend you are agreeing to be liable for the fee even if you should decide not to attend.
