Creative Climates Virtual Event

10am–4:15pm, Tuesday 1st September 2020

Make plans to join us for a uniquely immersive experience and engaging world of print, design and photography discussion.

Like you, we we’re very sad not to see everyone face-to-face at our Annual Conference at Belton Woods, Lincolnshire. While there’s nothing like face-to-face interaction, we’re delighted to welcome everyone to our Creative Climates Virtual Event.

We’ll be hosting talks from professional speakers, members’ sessions, suppliers’ forum and a Covid-19 2020 Special Awards ceremony.

The event is free to attend and will include a Q&A with the speaker,, audience participation through live polls and engagement with your suppliers.

Our board have prepared a full and exciting programme. There really is something for everyone, whether you’re print, design or photography based or all three!
