This year's conference will take place on Tuesday 30th May 2017 in the Aurivo Auditorium in the Sligo Institute of Technology. We're working hard to bring you a great line up of speakers and masterclasses to give you a fantastic day of professional development. Keep an eye on this page as we announce more details in the coming weeks.
