Networking Opportunities

In the atrium, near the registration desk we will be providing a board, cards and pens for you to leave details of projects you are working on and people you would like to work with.

If you’re looking for someone with experience of a particular subject or region to collaborate with, please leave details here. This is also a place to leave your business card or details of your skills if you are looking for work.

The Investigative Journalism Notice Board has been a great hit in past years; it offers an offline way of networking, so please use it!

We will also put up announcements of any changes to the timetable here.

In addition to our usual drinks reception, we are offering a speakers and delegates lunch on the Saturday.

These will give you the opportunity to meet with speakers and trainers as well as other delegates. Many past delegates commented on how easy it was to access the summer conference speakers. This is something we pride ourselves on - fantastic networking and friendly atmosphere.

After lunch, for the first time ever, we will be offering themed networking sessions. They will focus on three main topics: Freedom of Information Act,

At the back of the Conference brochure we will provide a guide to New Cross and the surrounding area with some recommended places if you want to socialise after the event.
