Conference 2012

PIPA’s 7th Annual Conference

Around 130 attendees joined us over the two days of the 2012 PIPA Conference and Exhibition at the Beaumont Estate, Windsor.

The conference programme included a range of presentations and workshops from expert speakers addressing topical matters of particular significance to MI and PV professionals.

Conference also provides a fantastic platform for networking opportunities facilitated by both discussion in the programme sessions and through the more informal evening social event.

We sincerely hope that those of you who attended found the experience rewarding and educational.
