We are delighted to announce that the annual LAPADA Conference will be held on Tuesday March 3rd, 2020 from 10:00am – 5:00pm at a stunning new venue, the RSA House in central London. The day will be full of practical, inspiring information to help your business thrive in 2020.

The programme’s theme is ‘Opportunity Knocks’, as the event will focus on helping the trade to reach new markets as well retain business by looking for the opportunities rather than being hampered by ‘red tape’!
