PDA Society Conference

2020 conference – PDA in 2020, 18th March, Nottingham
Coronavirus update: 13/3/20 – With great regret we’ve decided to postpone our conference next week. Although the UK Government decided not to restrict public gatherings yesterday, we feel it’s prudent given the increased spread of Coronavirus and the vulnerability of our audience.
We’re hoping to re-schedule the conference, finances permitting, and very much hope you’ll be able to join us at a later date. As a very small charity, the impact of all this will be financially challenging, but of course everyone’s health and wellbeing is the top priority.
All tickets will be fully refunded – delegates will be receiving an email shortly and current ticket holders will be given the option of having two days’ advance notice of the re-arranged date (please note that it may be some time before we can confirm a date as things are likely to remain uncertain for the foreseeable future) before tickets go on general sale.
Many thanks for your understanding and wishing everyone all the best at this tricky time.
