Evening – Speakers Dinner and Pre-conference Social.
For any of you that are around the night before, there is a social venue booked for folks to meet up and start networking. This is in ‘The Salmon Rooms’ at the Lass O’Gowrie on Charles Street, Manchester – which is only a few hundred yards from the conference centre.
