I really enjoyed my first conference. It was great to meet people in our industry and network.

The event was well-put-together with relevant and informative speakers covering current topics affecting the PRS. It was an enjoyable day and also created a good opportunity to network and hear from new vendors.

Ashleigh Paton Scottish National Conference 2023

Speakers were good and their presentations excellent. Claire was my favourite, she touched on a different aspect this time around. Rory and Timothy were very knowledgeable as always. Jason was very friendly and welcoming which made it less awkward when we walked in 10 minutes late! Lastly - lunch was 10/10!
