Event summary

Our annual Wessex Conference and Exhibitors day is again hosted by Hampshire County Council.

Quality presenters will deliver a core programme of topics including the Hampshire County Council led partnership, property portfolio management, powering digital engagement, maintaining financial resilience, CIPFA presidential address and a Brexit update.

Workshops led by the relevant experts offer an opportunity for some focused learning and sharing of good practice. The day is also a great chance to meet some public service exhibitors and should be an excellent networking opportunity.
