The 2016 National Conference will be held at the award winning Sofitel Hotel and Conference Centre on Friday 18 November. This is a luxury 5 star venue close to London's Heathrow Airport, with fantastic facilities including onsite parking and free
Improving your delegate experience
For 2016, we’re moving away from the traditional conference format of previous years to bring you an improved delegate experience. We are reintroducing breakout sessions to give you more choice about the topics that you want to hear about and the information that you want to take away from the event. And as the main auditorium, trade exhibition area and breakout sessions are all located on the same floor, it will be even easier for delegates to get around and really make the most of this must-attend Conference.

Brand New Venue
The 2016 Conference venue has no less than five bars and eateries including French fine dining at La Belle Époque and fresh, live cooking at the international Vivre. Cocktails and light bites are served at Stylish Sphere, whilst those really wanting to celebrate can visit Perrier-Jouet Bar, the hotel’s elegant champagne bar.
Sofitel’s 578 bedrooms include 24-hour room service and access to a 24-hour gym. For those making a weekend of it, why not book yourself into the Sofitel wellbeing spa or hair studio.
