PI world conference 2020

Tuesday, 17 - Friday, 20 November

Sponsorship and exhibition packages available

This extended FOUR DAY programme will integrate APIL’s traditional annual conference and our advanced brain and spinal cord injury conference. By combining the two conferences together and introducing even more targeted streams throughout the event, we hope to attract a larger, broader and more specialist audience than usual.


APIL abuse conference

Friday, 13 November

Virtual sole sponsorship package

In 2020, APIL is delighted to celebrate it’s 30 years and 12th annual abuse conference. For the first time ever, this popular event is going fully virtual and we have now put together a very special digital package for our sole sponsor, which will help to elevate your brand amongst our delegates and speakers, in a new and innovative way.

Ways of marketing to our members

There are many ways in which advertisers and experts can market their services to our members:

Residential conferences

In 2020, APIL will run two residential conferences to celebrate its 30th year – APIL’s special 30th anniversary conference in May; and then our annual clinical negligence conference in October.

The 30th anniversary conference will incorporate both the APIL annual conference and the advanced brain and spinal cord injury conference. This event has received a phenomenal response and whilst all sponsorship and standard exhibition packages have already sold out, we have now released some non-residential exhibition packages; to give you another chance to be involved!

Places on both conferences are selling quickly, so if you would like to attend, we would urge you to book now to avoid disappointment!

For further information on residential conference opportunities please call Kathryn Scott on 0115 943 5400 or email

One-day conferences

APIL runs several one-day specialist conferences each year including: abuse conference, asbestos conference, military claims and accidents abroad conference. Sole sponsorship packages are available at each of the one day conferences, with exhibition opportunities also available at the accidents abroad conference.
