National Conference 2020

A Question of Quality

Delegates gather for a drinks reception
Due to the current situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) we would like to announce that regrettably the Natspec National Conference that was scheduled for 19 and 20 May will not now take place as planned. All existing delegate bookings and invoices paid or sent out will be rolled forward to the conference when it is rescheduled, with a new date being planned for March 2021.

Awards dinner

The conference dinner takes place on the evening of the first day of the conference. In addition, for the first time ever, the Natspec Awards will be presented.

There will also be a drinks reception on Tuesday evening before the dinner.
