Changes to this year's timetable

There have been a few further changes to this year's timetable, please note:

  • Earlier exhibition open time Wednesday with lunch available: the exhibition will open at the earlier time of 12:00 on Wednesday, and we will make a sandwich lunch available (please select this when you register, tickets will be required)

  • Welcome drinks on Wednesday evening: we have returned to drinks and light nibbles leaving you free to take dinner in the city. There will not be a hot buffet meal this evening since feedback last year suggested that most would prefer to make their own arrangements.

  • Earlier finish on Friday afternoon: we will end at 16:00. We hope very much that this will mean EVERYONE can stay to the end of the meeting, which will round off with a superb Consultants' Corner session, which is not to be missed! There are plenty of flights out of Barcelona if you need to leave on Friday, please support the afternoon session!
