New! Conference 2018 has a new home.

We have an important announcement to make regarding your Annual Learning Event, Conference, AGM, and Networking Event that traditionally is held every October.  You will have read my previous blog post “We have listened”.  It was clear that Stoke Rochford Hall did not meet your needs as a destination for various reasons.  Therefore, we have found a venue that will ensure that delegates can focus on the APP (and CX) content, without distraction.

Woodland Grange offers the best of all worlds – a rich heritage dating back to Victorian times with contemporary facilities ranging from complimentary, superfast internet access to a state-of-the-art fitness room, sauna and Jacuzzi.  


Geographical experts assure me that if you balanced the UK and Ireland on a pin it would rest at Leamington Spa, so that is where we are going!  The Venue is Woodland Grange, a 4-star hotel in a beautiful location with advanced conference facilities and superb accommodation.  The location is great, with good motorway, rail and air access.  There are 114 rooms with 280 car parking spaces.  Free 100MB Wi-Fi service is excellent as are mobile signals. 



State of the art facilities.

They do conferences, that is their core business.  They provided a very professional solution to every query we posed. 

There are lovely grounds, a gym, hot tub, games room, pool table, Wii games etc.  We checked the Bar prices, they are acceptable.   If you fancy taking some leave before or after the Conference, local attractions are Warwick Castle, Spa in Leamington, Kenilworth Castle and the National Motor Museum.

Ken Searle, your Secretary visited the venue “Woodland Grange is a professionally run facility which offers a high standard of conference services, accommodation and food in an easily accessible location”

The National Executive has agreed to keep the cost to delegates the same as last year!  Booking will be open later this year. Put 9th to 11th October 2018 in your diary now!

Let us know what you think of the new venue in the comments below.
