SUPER SEPTEMBER

Labour Party 2013 Leaders Speech_resizeThe evenings are getting darker and the cold is creeping in, as autumn is thrusted upon us, we thought we would reflect back on our Super September, a month packed full of events which kept us on our toes.

The conference was attended by 835 delegates and featured 312 international speakers – as you can imagine it was a busy few days at the Centre. During the four days the conference explored the contribution that physics and engineering can make to healthcare, and showcased the latest developments in research. It was well received by all that attended and saw September get off to a great start. Continue reading

It’s a great way to meet prospective clients and talk to them about what improvements we’ve been doing here and find out if their event needs would fit in the venue. Continue reading
