Expression of interest to attend the Birmingham event

If you are interested in attending this event please register for the event by 5pm, Thursday 16th August, to indicate your interest to attend. As places are limited for the event you will be contacted by 20th August to confirm if you have been allocated a place. Venue information will be given to confirmed participants only.

We are looking to have representatives from as wide a number and range of organisations as possible. As we have limited space, we would ask that all organisations (including Universities) limit the number of registrations/organisation.

Pitch presentations 

We plan to provide delegates with the opportunity to deliver a short pitch presentation outlining their project ideas, and capabilities required / offered. Please provide details as part of the registration process. There are only a limited number of places, and so the organisers will contact you in due course to let you know if you have been selected to provide a pitch.

Registration for the webinar

The briefing event will also be broadcast as a webinar, and the recording of that webinar will be made available online after the event. You can register for the webinar here.
