CIPFA North West Flagship Event

Join us for the North West flagship annual conference and dinner being held on Friday 13 November at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

The annual dinner and awards ceremony takes place on the same evening at the same venue to celebrate the year and catch up with senior finance professionals across the North West on a more informal basis.  It’s not just for CIPFA Members so bring your spouses along!

Book your place at the dinner for only £30. Or why not book both the conference and dinner as a package saving £10 on the total price.
