THE VENUE

Cavendish Conference Centre
(near Oxford Circus and Cavendish Square)

The Cavendish Conference Centre is one of the leading conference venues in the UK.

Why have we chosen the Cavendish for this year's conference? Partly because of its tiered amphitheatre and state of the art conference facilities. But mostly because their food is simply fabulous – way better than most conference venues – and they have free, reliable wi-fi throughout.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!
