What to expect in 2020
Besides our line-up of great speakers, we also want to make conference an engaging experience outside of the lecture theatre. We brought you selfie frames and Demo Hub, the latter of which will take place during our evening drinks reception as you unwind after a day of lectures. The exhibition will be open to non-delegates in the evening so if you know you cannot attend the event during the day, or your colleagues want to join you in the evening, this is a great opportunity to meet the exhibitors, speakers, and take advantage of the discounts.
There will be interactive polls for you to take part in, prize draws and competitions lead by our trade exhibition and an evening event that will let you party the night away on Friday.
Our conference will take place next year on a Friday and Saturday. The trade exhibition launch is at 10.35am to warmly introduce you to all of the exhibitors who have kindly attended. Without our exhibitors, we would not be able to provide conference at the great value that we do. We bring you the most relevant trade exhibitors for private practice, keeping you up to date with the most current products and services and forming an integral part of our conference.
We have always prided ourselves on the great networking opportunity our conference offers to physios, especially sole practitioners, so do come and join us and experience the great atmosphere
Our team will once again be available to discuss all things Quality Assured on our Research and Development stand; find out more about the benefits you might be missing out on at our Membership stand, and get up close and personal with our editorial team to discuss writing for our In Touch journal or look through our extensive archive of publications.
Not only will you get access to all of the above but the EMCC and Orchard Hotel is a great central location to so many cities and areas, and it's located in a stunning orchard setting. So even when you need a break from all the amazing nuggets you're getting from the speakers, you can enjoy the wonderful spring greenery on the Nottingham University campus, with walks and runs.
We hope to see you there!

We pride ourselves on the networking opportunities our conferences present, especially to the sole practitioner, where working alone can be isolating and can make it difficult to meet like minded professionals.
Our 2020 conference is the ideal setting to meet new people, network with people of similar interests to you or from the same area as you, and take away some great hints and tips to use in your practice come Monday morning. Next year we are introducing the following:
- Morning running/walking groups
- Talk to your regional champion about anything - whether you've just started a new business and need some pointers, or if you're interested in volunteering, our team will be in the concourse all weekend
- Friday night buffet is attended by lots of sole practitioners that want to let their hair down with a glass of wine and meet other people like you
- Meet our friendly office and exec teams - get to know the volunteers behind Physio First and share your thoughts
- Visit the exhibition where a number of products are aimed toward practice principals
- New badges so you can identify other sole practitioners
