Update 2018

15-16 October 2018


IPROW’s Update is a conference style event with a series of presentations, primarily from members, about recent innovations or initiatives, intended to provoke thought, discussion and opportunities for review or change of practice.

The programme will include a wide spectrum of topics of current interest, keeping you abreast of change and offering the potential to make savings through improvements to processes.

Exhibitors will provide the opportunity to catch up with the latest innovations in path furniture, signs and software.

Early bookings by members as full delegate will attract a discount if received before 1 July.

Annual General Meeting

There will be an IPROW Annual General Meeting at 17.45 on Monday 15 October and the opportunity to discuss the work and future of IPROW. AGMs are informal and tend to be short and members are strongly encouraged to stay for the meeting so that decisions are representative of as much of the membership as possible.
