After the day of travelling and programme, delegates will be treated to a Welcome Reception at the venue, following immediately on from sessions. Drinks and canapés will be served. Please wear your Conference badge.
Because of a change in football match scheduling, this is now Derby Day (Manchester United vs Manchester City premier league match) and traffic in Manchester will be particularly busy throughout the late afternoon and early evening.
Therefore based upon the advice of the bus tour company we have made the decision to cancel the bus tour element of the Welcome Reception.
There will be information in your delegate bag about local restaurants to enjoy after the drinks and canapés.
Tickets must be pre-booked: Tickets are complimentary for full registrants. For Guest and Day Delegate Registrants tickets are £22.00.
The Science and Industry Museum is a place full of amazing objects and world changing ideas.

Perhaps find out how our revolutionary railroad changed Manchester and the world forever.
A superb facility of high standard – welcome drinks in the Engine Shed and then pass into the Station for dinner followed by late evening dancing to The RUSH band and then DJ, musician and radio presenter Clint Boon who rose to fame as the keyboard player (and sometimes vocalist) of Inspiral Carpets.
