The CIEP annual conference 2022: In person and online

Following successful online CIEP conferences in 2020 and 2021, we want to build on all that we’ve learnt by offering a hybrid event in 2022.

The aim is to offer complementary and integrated experiences for both online and in-person delegates and even some of the speakers!


When: Dates for the conference

The conference will take place from Saturday 10 September to Monday 12 September 2022.


Where: Venue information

The in-person element will take place at Kents Hill Park, a training and conference centre just outside Milton Keynes.

The virtual element will take place online at the same time. We’ll let you know how this will work as soon as we’ve finalised the details.


How: Booking your place

Booking will open in March 2022, and we’ll publish a provisional programme at the same time so you can see what’s on offer.
