We run various national conferences in addition to our courses.

If you’re short on time, attending an RTA conference provides the perfect opportunity to get up to speed on various topics, hear from a range of presenters and network with colleagues.  We also offer some great early bird discounts!

Our conferences also provide the perfect platform for exhibitors to promote products and services directly to delegates. With networking time built into the programme, there are plenty of opportunities to interact with delegates throughout the day.
