Please reply to this e-mail if you are going to be sending an insert and include what you will be sending  – boxes have a habit of getting lost in hotels and it is easier to find them if I know what I am looking for.

  • Inserts can be a brochure (no more than 4 pages) or a small gift
  • Please supply 300 inserts for the delegate bag
  • Please ensure that inserts arrive between Saturday 14 May 2016 – Monday 16 May – if they do not reach the venue by this date, they will not be placed in the delegate bags.
