The CIEP annual conference 2024

Conference Aston

CIEP annual conference

Conference Aston, Birmingham, and online

Saturday 7 September to Monday 9 September 2024

‘Embracing change’

Conference Aston is part of the Aston University campus and is situated close to Birmingham city centre. The conference centre offers excellent meeting facilities and four-star hotel rooms all under one roof. It’s easily accessible by train, with three stations within a ten-minute walk, and it also has on-site parking (for a fee) and EV charging points.

The online conference will take place at the same time via Zoom, and many sessions will be fully hybrid, allowing in-person and online delegates to interact with the speakers.

Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to develop your professional knowledge, network and socialise with like-minded colleagues – join us in September, either in person or online.

Booking will open in April 2024, at which time we’ll also publish the provisional programme. Check back then for updates.
