NOTE This year, please ring the MDSG office on 0115 987 5869 to book your accommodation. We have already pre-booked and reserved several rooms. The Hotel may not be able to guarantee a room if you book directly with them and the rates will be different.
The cost of bed and breakfast for a single room is £101 and a double is £113.
However, we are aware that attending the Conference can be expensive. To help offset some of these costs, MDSG is offering to pay half the hotel costs for Bed and Breakfast for Friday night 21 June 2019. If you give your receipt to Mike Walker or send it into the office by 31 July 2019 then you will be reimbursed.
This offer applies to one night only Friday 21 June 2019 and only if you stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel.
Remember book with us, NOT the hotel
Please do this as early as you can, being on the airport complex, rooms get booked very quickly.
PLEASE READ THESE NOTES CAREFULLY
Booking forms must be returned by Tuesday 4 June 2019. Numbers and the logistics of catering and seating in the syndicate rooms, is arranged in advance of the Conference.
We cannot Guarantee that you and your party will be able to sit together at the meal times. There are only ten chairs around each table.
Provided there are sufficient numbers to warrant employing qualified staff to run it, there will be a creche. This must be pre-booked. If numbers are low, then a room will be set aside for you or someone of your choosing to look after your child. In that instance you would be responsible for your child, throughout the day.
The programme will follow similar lines to previous years and include three sessions of workshops. We would like to encourage all delegates young and old to attend all or some of these workshops. There will be a variety of topics. The smaller groups means that everyone can select a subject relevant to their own situation.
The Young Adults will have a separate programme. A separate booking form will be sent. Please book early. Numbers may have to be restricted. Please notify the MDSG on the Young Adults booking form of any special needs. If you wish to discuss these sessions prior to booking please contact Elycia Ormandy on 0161 445 5844.
