We’re pleased to announce that our first confirmed exhibitor is entitledto and we have several others in the pipeline to be confirmed and announced soon so you really do need to get in early if you want to secure a spot. As those of you who attended last year’s conference will know, the buzzing exhibition area was a highlight.
We’re also delighted that Intrum has signed up as this year’s headline sponsor for the second year running and that Computershare will also be sponsoring the conference again. Please get in touch about bespoke sponsorship packages if you are interested in showing your support and getting the significant exposure opportunities which come with it, especially for those that sign up early.
