The Conference Buddy Programme

2022 was the first time we offered a Conference Buddy programme, designed for those who have never been to conference or just wanted someone to buddy up with. It was a great success and is a service we are offering again this year. Are you possibly nervous about coming to conference on your own or not knowing anyone and would like a friendly face to connect with when you get here? Let us know on the booking form if you'd like a Conference Buddy and we'll be in touch with more details. You may be buddied up with either a new member or an experienced organiser.


Please note: this is a separate programme to the buddy programme APDO run for members.
