BIGSPD Annual Conference has been moved to
Monday 14th – Wednesday 16th June 2021

We at BIGSPD have been continuing to think about the impact of the pandemic and our place in supporting our members and delegates in fulfilling their roles in their respective communities. Having considered the options and listened to feedback, we want to make every effort to hold a conference during 2021. Whilst we believe electronic solutions can bring great learning events, we understand that our conference is fundamentally one that requires a physical presence.

As we go into the Autumn, it seems a challenge to deliver this, but we think it is worth the effort to lay down such plans now in the hope of success despite the uncertainty ahead.

In order to achieve this in such a way that our delegates will find a safe atmosphere that is sustainable for all, we are going to make a number of changes to our normal approach. These are still under consideration, however the first decision is to work with our partners on an acceptable date. We are therefore proposing to move the conference to:

                Monday 14th – Wednesday 16th June 2021

If you have already registered please hold this date in your diary. If you would like to register for the conference please click on the register button below.
