This year's BOA Annual Congress is almost upon us once again, this time returning to the impressive surroundings of Manchester Central, formerly known as the International Convention Centre when it was last there in 2004. If you are planning on attending the congress then make sure you have registered, which can be done by downloading the registration form from

As always, BOA has arranged a social event and, as has become the norm, it is co-sponsored by OPN and the event organisers Event Presentations. The Opening Reception is being held on Wednesday 26th September in the foyer of the Exhibition Hall, beginning at 6.15pm. This is an informal reception, with an informal dress code, providing you with an opportunity to wind down and meet in a rather more relaxed atmosphere.
The reception is open to both delegates and exhibitors. Tickets need to be pre-ordered from Janet Mills on 02392 570888 or email and cost a reasonable £20. We all look forward to seeing you there.
