The conference officially opens on Thursday 16 September, but increasingly
the Wednesday Fringe Day has become an incredibly well supported and
important part of the conference. We’ve decided to help delegates attending the
Fringe Day to learn the ropes and settle in quickly by having a conference
orientation and warm-up session. This session will introduce you to the conference
and to each other; it will set the scene and help you to break the ice.
