The online conference is now available online to people who register by close of play on Friday 16 October. Registration is online.

Registered delegates were able to ask questions of the DDA Board via the DDA Exhibition Room, access the full Best Practice conference programme, and visit the conference exhibitors, whose support makes these free events possible.
