BISHTA announce Information and Networking Day Opportunities coming this October

The trade association Information and Networking Days provide an invaluable opportunity to share topical information with BISHTA members, hear members’ feedback, and share views with industry peers. This year, the plan is to return to live events being held in Andover and Doncaster. The opportunities are of course subject to relevant COVID-19 restrictions and should this need to change, the events will be held online.
