This year's conference will be held the De Vere East Midlands Conference Centre near Nottingham between 31st October and 1st November 2018.
As in previous years, we will be kicking off our 2018 conference with a choice of three different twilight workshops on 31st October between 4:15pm and 6:15pm. The workshops will be followed by a drinks reception and dinner from 7pm providing you with an opportunity to network and talk to colleagues from across the country. Accomodation and breakfast will also be available at the conference centre.
The conference day itself will be held on 1st November 2018 and is scheduled to run from 10:00am and to finish by 4:15pm.
We want to make booking and attending the 2018 conference as enjoyable as possible so we are happy to offer you three different packages available this year:
Full package for £250 - Twilight workshop, dinner and overnight accomodation on 31st October plus breakfast and a full conference pass on 1st November.
Reduced package for £240 - Dinner and overnight accomodation on 31st October plus breakfast and a full conference pass on 1st November.
Twilight workshop and conference day only for £140 - No accomodation or overnight stay included.
Conference day only for £120 - Full conference pass on 1st November only.
The full amount for your chosen package is payable to NCOGS. Rooms are limited and booking quickly to secure your room is recommended. Unfortunately, only delegates who book accomodation are able to attend the pre-conference dinner but we would absolutely welcome non-residents to the pre-dinner drinks.
