Please ensure that all mobile phones are turned off or set to Silent during conference proceedings.

For those who have booked accommodation, please note that check out time is 11am each day so you will need to allow some extra time on Friday morning to vacate your room and check out at Reception on the ground floor.

We hope you have an enjoyable time at the 2023 SAPPA Conference and look forward to seeing you there.
