The November event is split into two days. The first day, Thursday 7th November, consists of registration at the main Belfry reception from 14:00 to 17:00. Similar to last year, we will be holding a separate PathManager user group session from 15:00 – 16:30 and a separate CyberLab user group session from 16:30 – 18:00 on Thursday 7th November. Please note that these sessions are designed to be attended by customers who already use PathManager and CyberLab. Please mark your booking form if you would like to attend these sessions so that we can accommodate delegate numbers. A parallel conference session with the theme of “innovation reshaping pathology services” will also commence at 3pm in the Woodlands suite to accommodate those delegates who don’t yet have PathManager or CyberLab. Details of this session will follow. Please note that lunch is not being provided on Thursday as the programme is scheduled to commence at 3pm.
The second day, Friday 8th November, will see day delegate registration from 09.00 followed by a programme of open sessions which now provide delegates with a choice of what to attend and include options on various topics, presentations, and guest speakers. As before, discipline and product specific sessions will be held in the afternoon directly after lunch.
