Annual Conference

Thank you to everyone who attended the 2021 SWW Conference!

This year’s conference took place on the 11th and 12th of October and we went back to The Hilton East Midlands Airport. We hosted the 2019 event here and many who attended will agree it was our best conference to date, with everything coming together flawlessly thanks to the excellent facilities and the staff who helped make it all happen. We know that it was going to be a tough one to beat, but the feedback is already pouring in and has been overwhelmingly positive.

We’ve still got some news and updates to share following the event, so keep checking the website and the SWW Newsletter to find out all the latest on speakers, exhibitors and venue information.

Thank you for coming, and we can’t wait to see you again next year!
