Annual Update 2020


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

Due to uncertainty over Covid-19, this year’s Update will be by video conference and we hope you will join us online to take advantage of the lower price and no travelling.

The format of the Update lends itself to this delivery, which we have tested thoroughly over the last three months, and will be eight to ten one hour sessions of speaker plus audience discussion. The breaks between will have casual ‘chat over coffee’ drop-in opportunities to simulate the networking we shall otherwise miss and conversations with our usual exhibitor suppliers.

Early Bird Discount has been extended to 1 August. With Early Bird and Member discounts, you can attend all sessions for £180. Partial or cancellation refunds will be made for bookings already confirmed.

Annual General Meeting

There will be an IPROW Annual General Meeting in the late afternoon (TBC subject to programme) on Monday 12 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.
