Please note that these social events require advanced registration as part of the on-line conference registration process (via the IADMS Annual Meeting web site). All events are open to delegates and their guests and are booked on a first-come, first-served basis due to limited space. All prices quoted are in British Pounds Sterling.
All events are subject to change. You must register in advance. Limited on-site registration for social events may be possible if space is available, but is not guaranteed.
To try and help attendees meet new people or just to go out as a group, there will be sign up sheets each day for a variety of local restaurants.
