Do I have to stay in one track the whole time?

Not at all, unless that is the best use of conference for you and your organisation. Feel free to move from track to track finding the session that best suits your professional development needs.

Pre Conference Masterclasses are different. Once you select your preferred masterclass to attend you stay with it for the full day. For more information about the Masterclasses please click here.
