ASSIST Conference 2012

30th & 31st August Glasgow Caledonian University

This year's Conference was held in Glasgow and saw the best turnout of delegates yet,. The suppliers were delighted with the time they got to spend with the delegates. Many said it was the best ASSIST exhibition yet.

The theme for the 2012 Conference was 'Open to Change' and the delegate sessions and exhibition were held in Caledonian University for the first time. Thanks go to our speakers;
