Remembering the 2018 conference…

With around 30 high-profile speakers (including Ann Francke, CEO, the Chartered Management Institute and Lee Davies, CE, the Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys) and 300 delegates, the conference was one of the leading dates in the sector’s calendar. We were proud to retain an extremely senior audience at this event and all our delegates benefitted from the expertise imparted and the invaluable networking opportunities.
