Our Conference is getting closer – we have just one full week to finalise the handbooks (which have all our speakers notes – a valuable asset in themselves) and get all our lists and badges completed. Then next week – off to Manchester ready for Conference on Thursday 12th.
This is the first conference we have done in the North West and we are really looking forward to it. The Hilton is a fine hotel.
If you based in that area and would like the combination of a good day out and a big boost to your landlord legal knowledge – we do still have a few places available. Find out more and book your place here.
