Lots of exciting and informative speakers discussing topics that you’ve told us are important to you. Check back a little bit later in the year when we will have a full programme available!
Can I present at the conference?
Think you’ve got an idea worth sharing? We’d love to hear from you! Please send a 250 word proposal outlining your presentation to [email protected] by Sunday 30 June 2019.
How much does the conference cost?
We ask for a £15 refundable deposit to secure your place. We do this because conferences cost a lot of money to put together (over £50 per person). It is worth every penny when everybody shows up and gets something useful from it, however unfortunately some people may register for an event and not turn up. This is not cool as we still have to pay for the venue and catering, and as we have very limited spaces it causes someone else to miss out.
We know that everyone’s financial situation is different, so if you come along on the day and wish to have your £15 refunded, we will do that for you, no questions asked. Alternatively, you may wish to consider it a donation to CLAPA – entirely your decision. If paying the £15 deposit up-front will be an issue for you, please get in touch directly at [email protected] to let us know, and we can reserve you a place.
