A networking drinks reception and dinner takes place at the end of Conference Day One, bringing colleagues together to meet, socialise and continue the discussions of the day.

The drinks reception is an ideal way to connect with colleagues, meet new faces and develop your professional network.
A three-course dinner will follow, after which, attendees will enjoy an address from CILIP’s President, Sue Williamson, followed by an evening of live entertainment.
Smart/business dress is advised.
