This will be held at the EICC on Monday 28th August and will allow delegates to familiarise themselves with the venue location and enjoy complimentary canapes and drinks and the opportunity to meet and chat with colleagues.

The conference will be opened at 6.30pm by welcome speeches from the Conference Chair as well as invited dignatories. We will also have the first key note speaker.

The welcome reception will follow at 7.30pm and will conclude at 8.30pm. It will be followed by the opportunity to watch the Festival Fireworks Display at 9pm which marks the end of the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe events.
