Conference programme

Our conference will be fully online, with an exciting mixture of live and pre-recorded events. All live events will be recorded and available for later on-demand viewing. All theme sessions will be pre-recorded in advance of the event and released across the three weeks of the conference- details coming soon to presenters.

You will be able to submit questions to presenters and watch their answers in Q&A sessions planned for the end of each week, in podcasts (released online in the following months) or via an online forum (details of this coming soon).
