The highlight of the protection annual events calendar, packed with insight to help your business


Conference and Awards on 9th December goes virtual

The Protection Review Conference and Awards on 9th December will now be a virtual event.

We've had to make this decision because of ongoing COVID-19 concerns, but we've come up with a virtual event which will be a fast paced and exciting online alternative to our usual live event at The London Landmark Hotel. 

This is what we are doing:

Instead of the full day conference and evening awards dinner, everything will take place during a 2.5 hour morning event

We’ll announce award winners throughout the morning – and we'll be keeping the order of announcements a secret to create the anticipation you'd get from a real awards ceremony!

Two conference sessions featuring three speakers presenting for 10 minutes followed by a panel debate:

Session one: “Personalisation of Protection”
Session two: "Social Care and the Protection Industry"

So please keep the morning of 9th December in your diary. We'll be sending out registration instructions soon via our email bulletins. If you haven't signed up already, you can register to receive them at the top of our home page.
