With restrictions still in place following the global pandemic, we're unable to bring the GAD community together in person this year. Instead, the conference will take place virtually in 2020 -  guaranteeing a safe, social environment that is accessible to all.

Every aspect of the program has been reassessed to suit a virtual setting, ensuring your digital experience delivers maximum value. Expect networking, peer interaction, a socially engaged digital experience with meetings able to be scheduled to accommodate all time zones.

All for just £499.
