BACH past National events
BACH organises a three-day conference in March and a one-day CPD conference in November for its Members. Our events have been in Leeds, Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby, York, Lincoln and Bedford
As the popularity of BACH Conferences grows and new colleges are attending, the interest is increasing in having a table display or 1.5mstand (exhibit area). To be fair to everyone, we will allocate exhibit areas on the following basis.
Sponsors will be allocated their exhibit area first, as we have contracted this. We will then allocate Full and Associate Members on a first come, first served basis without charge, but the Member must book at least one delegate for the complete conference. If they wish to have others assist in manning their exhibit area, they will be charged at the Member’s rate for the full conference or daily rate. For each event, we will have a cut-off day for priority bookings, after which we will take bookings from other organisations. Other organisations will be charged as below
One-day National Conferences
Exhibit area including two conference places with lunch and refreshments £150
Three-day National Conference
Exhibit area including one complete conference package with accommodation and meals £700
If they wish to have others assist in manning their exhibit area, they will be charged at the Member’s rate for the full conference of £450 or a daily rate (daytime only) of £150.
