"Fantastic, well-pitched programme. Excellent presentations. Panel was fantastic. "
"It was a great day and a privilege to be part of it. It was great fun, very educational brilliantly organised and, in short, everything that an event like this should be. "

APIL is delighted to be heading to the Marriott Regents Park Hotel in London, this November, for it's 8th annual international injuries conference.  

We are delighted to offer this programme as a hybrid event where delegates can either choose to view the event live in person or watch this virtually, via APIL's dedicated conference app.  All delegates attending in person will also have access to the virtual programme, where they can watch this back - on demand - over a period of six months.

APIL is also delighted to have negotiated discounted accommodation rates at the Marriott Regents Park Hotel and guests can book accommodation directly with the hotel (at the cost of £242 for single occupancy; including VAT and breakfast).  Please contact the APIL office for further details of how to book.
