2020 Conference - Save the date!
Our biennial HGI conferences are always a fun way to stay up-to-date and network with like-minded professionals.
The dates have just been announced for the next one which is being held on the weekend of 16th–17th May 2020 at Woodland Grange in Leamington Spa. Situated in the rural heart of England, this convenient central location is only 17 miles from Birmingham International airport and is easily accessed from both road and rail networks.
