This year we will not be taking bookings for Surgeries before the conference, you can book them on the IFS stand when you arrive at the event.
The Theme of the Conference this year is “Making the Most of IFS”, we have included some interesting presentations about the different uses of the same aspects of IFS and of how to achieve best practice. As a result of feedback received after the conference last year, we are also including specific time slots for meeting with other Members, with the IFS Team or with the IFS Partners, we hope that you will find this useful and will make the most of this opportunity to gain from others’ experience.
As always our members request “more customer presentations at the next conference please”… So, we are looking for members who would be prepared to make a presentation. Members who speak at our Annual Conference are entitled to free attendance at the event including their accommodation. You do not have to be an expert, you just need to have an interesting experience or a successful project relating to IFS that you can present. The committee reserve the right to decide which presentations are included in the conference, unfortunately it is not always possible to include everybody. If you would be interested in presenting, please let us know on [email protected]
Please note that there is an informal dinner on the night of the 1st July for those people who wish to arrive on the night before the conference starts. The conference itself will start at 8.30am on the 2nd July and will finish at 3pm on the 3rd July so that you can get on your way home before the rush hour traffic.
