8th National Conference

It goes without saying, that the 8th National Conference and Exhibition was an ‘absolute cracker’ and from all accounts, thoroughly enjoyed by all that attended or participated. Congratulations once again goes out to Chris Bland with his professional team and Chris Frangos and his team for a job well done.
