How you can join in online:

Discussion forums will be based around the session themes plus delegates will also be able to start their own discussion forum on any topic they like! Perhaps you want to find someone that you can have dinner with if you are going up the night before, or maybe car-share with you, or perhaps you have a burning issue that you would like to discuss with other conference delegates! We hope that you will find the online discussion forums useful and that you all take part. The online discussion forums are only open to registered delegates. So get registered, get online and join in the discussion!
