About the conference

It was another really fantastic conference this year which saw 400 people pass through the doors - our biggest turnout so far with fully booked workshops and a great atmosphere over the whole three days. Brought to us by Naked Element Ltd., the next conference is already being planned with the addition of a dedicated schools day.
