Countdown to #PlaceNet14 Conference - 21-23 May

The countdown to the #PlaceNet14 Conference is well underway. Our Trustees are working hard behind the scenes to finalise the agenda, book a fantastic venue for the Thursday night dinner and get ready to welcome you to Leeds on 21-23 May. If you have not yet registered to attend, there is still time to do so.

The full residential conference package includes 2 nights stay in the Leeds Marriott Hotel with access to the pool and fitness suite; all meals and refreshments, plus conference information and papers. The fee for PlaceNet members is £395, and £600 for non-members. Book your place at the conference here

We also offer a non-residential (Thursday only) package, which includes lunch, dinner, refreshments and conference information. This rate is for PlaceNet members only and costs £200.

Membership of PlaceNet for HE/FE organisations for 2014/15 is £195, so it works out cheaper for existing non-members to sign up for membership if they wish to attend the conference. If you're not already a PlaceNet member or have yet to renew your membership, you can do so online.

Should you have any queries about the conference, please send them to and we will aim to reply on the same working day.

Sign up for #PlaceNet14

The annual PlaceNet conference is fast approaching. This year, #PlaceNet14 will be held from 21-23 May at the Leeds Marriott Hotel, which boasts excellent leisure facilities and is located close to both the railway station and city centre shops.

The conference will provide a mix of interesting speakers, discussion and debate regarding the issues surrounding our industry as well as plenty of time to network. If you've not previously attended one of our conferences, Graham Kaye-Taylor provides a flavour from Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 of the 2013 edition via his Placement Blog.

To book your place at #PlaceNet14 register your details online using our sign up page. The full residential package for members is £395 which includes full board in a single occupancy room with en suite, all meals and refreshments, conference information and papers.

We very much hope you will be able to join us and look forward to seeing you all in West Yorkshire next month.
