Visitors to the event will have the chance to network and explore the latest developments in the SEND and education sector and will also be able to update their knowledge and learn from evidence-based practice. 

Delegates will also  have access to leading, award winning exhibitors, as well as several seminars and keynotes delivered by key figures in the sector. These will be available all day, so unlike previous years, you will have access to any of the seminars, meaning you pick and choose which are of most relevance and interest to you.
