Delegate Information

We are delighted to announce the EDWCA Business day and Trade show in conjunction with The Vendies Gala Dinner.

Taking place in the beautiful surroundings of The Forest of Arden Marriott Hotel in Meriden, the day promises to a mix of education, innovation and networking and is free to attend for EDWCA members (excluding the Awards dinner) however, pre-booking is required.

The day begins with the EDWCA Annual General meeting and will be followed by a wealth of knowledge from some inspiring Business Speakers. After lunch the day continues with the Trade Show and Meet the Speaker forums. These forums will give our members the chance to sit around a table with each of the speakers for a group session. Please note that registration is required for these sessions.
