Network Performance Seminar – 21 September 2021


The Network Performance Seminar is an in-person event sponsored by the Network Performance Board (NPB). The September Seminar will be held at thestudio in Birmingham, giving attendees the opportunity for face-to-face networking.

It will also be an opportunity to share good practice and discuss issues to drive performance improvement, hearing from a range of industry experts, as well as acclaimed international athlete and Keynote Speaker,    Kriss Akabusi, MBE.

In order to give delegates more space, to feel safer and more comfortable, we have reduced the capacity of venue to 100 delegates. The suggested dress code is business casual and there will be no dial-in option.

After the Seminar, from 16:00 - 17:00, there will be an optional networking reception, to continue any discussions more informally and to catch up with colleagues from across the industry.

COVID-19 arrangements to help make you feel safer:

  •  The standard distance of spacing between seats has been increased, and therefore, there will be fewer delegates at each table.
  • There will be a maximum of 100 delegates.
  • Hand sanitisers have been placed throughout the venue.
  • A one-way system will be in operation.
  • Delegates are invited to wear face coverings (unless exempt) in crowded spaces, out of consideration for others.
  • Breakfast snack boxes and lunch will be packaged individually.

Registration will close on 17th September, or when the 100 spaces are filled, whichever is sooner.
