UKeiG Conference: Innovation in e-Information - encouraging creative thinking and discussion amongst information professionals
Manchester Conference Centre
UKeiG pride themselves on listening to their membership and providing what they need, so for their conference in June they have extended the early bird discount. By booking before the 9th April, the full two-day residential conference costs only £300 for members. (Other rates are available for non-members, and non-residential or single day attendance - please see the website for full details: www.ukeig.org.uk).
So you can get two full days of speakers and discussions for less than the price many other training providers charge for a day!
Those who are attending the whole conference will also be able to enjoy the additional benefits of the conference drinks and conference dinner on the night of the 16th, where they will be able to mingle with other guests and speakers and network the evening away.
The information industry is in a continual state of change and information professionals need to stay one step ahead of the game. UKeiG is hosting 'Innovation in e-information' in order to drive this agenda forward. This conference will provide information professionals with the opportunity to expand their skills and knowledge, explore issues of strategic significance and advance their professional development activities.
This major UKeiG event will bring together experienced practitioners to share and discuss the key issues of service delivery across all sectors, providing expert guidance and opinion. Active delegate participation will be key, with opportunities to discuss issues, share experiences and formulate innovative solutions in the breakout sessions.
