The new format of the conference, the Rotary Conference and Showcase, will highlight the work being done on a local, national and international level, including in the host county of Nottinghamshire, and will offer an opportunity to engage with the public and potential Rotary members and volunteers. Over 1,500 delegates are expected to attend the 2019 conference hosted by Nottingham’s premier event venue – Royal Concert Hall. The registration is open and you can book your place here.
With plenty of opportunity to network and build on friendship, there’s no doubt you’ll leave the Conference and Showcase inspired and delighted by Nottingham’s unique charm.
The slavery symposium, convened by the University of Nottingham’s ‘Rights Lab’ in partnership with Rotary Great Britain and Ireland, brings together the latest advances in anti-slavery research, policy and practice to help you to fight slavery in your own community. The morning provides a choice of interactive workshop sessions, with case studies and information designed to appeal to businesses and professionals from a wide range of backgrounds, including health, law enforcement, local government and the voluntary sector. After lunch there will be an opportunity to hear from some of the leading experts in the field, and a chance to debate how Rotary can help to address this pressing global challenge. Admission includes lunch.
