SWW Conference 2023 – 12 weeks to go!


There are now only 12 weeks to go until this year’s SWW Conference (not that we’re counting), and whilst that still feels like quite a way away, once the summer holidays are done and dusted it won’t be long before we’re loading the van to head to the venue. As a reminder, this year’s conference takes place on the 9th and 10th of October at the Hilton East Midlands Airport – a tried and trusted venue for us, with excellent conference facilities and staff. With not long left to go, we thought it’d be worth taking a quick look at all the developments since we launched this year’s event just a couple of short months ago.


We’ve had a couple of minor changes to Day 1 of this year’s agenda.

  • The SWW Regional Chair’s Forum has been extended to an hour, allowing all delegates to meet and greet the chairs, ask questions, find out about upcoming meetings and learn about what else the SWW Regional Groups offer.
  • Richard Orpin, Director Regulation and Policy will now be delivering the update from the Legal Services Board.
  • Mark Abrol of Meridian Private Client LLP will now be joined by both Mark Terrar and Emma-Louise Green for their talk on Monday afternoon.

This year’s theme is centred around modern ways of working and best practice. With talks on compliance, contentious probate, AI and technology, crypto assets, marketing, and estate planning for clients abroad just to name a few, delegates are sure to go away having taken on vast amounts of knowledge from key industry speakers.

There has been significant demand for exhibitor stands in recent years, and this year we’re bringing along more than ever before. This year’s sponsor packages were quick to be snapped up, and we’re very grateful for their support for which without, it simply would not be possible to deliver the conference on the scale that we do.
