Tayside Conference 2018

CONFERENCE POSTPONED

It is with deep regret that, due to low take-up of tickets for the upcoming Tayside TSI Conference on 14 November 2018 in Dundee, we have taken a decision to postpone the event until further notice.

The conference was arranged to meet demand from the sector, therefore we will consult further in 2019 to ascertain if there is still an appetite for a conference going forward.  Initial feedback from the sector tells us that people have their heads down getting on with the job and dealing with current pressures.
