Meal from 6pm

6 Handler places are available on each of the main workshops for each of the presenters, these are booked prior to the conference. Spectators can choose which sessions to attend on the day. There are 4 Handler places available for the afternoon workshops for Andrew and Celia. The seminars are not booked in advanced as there are no Handler places available.

In order to be able to offer some workshops that look at more advanced training there will be prerequisites for the handler places on some of the workshops. These are covered in detail on the Speaker's Profile page where the content and any prerequisites are covered in detail.
