Why should I attend FAB 2017?

The FAB conference is the only annual two day event aimed at those working in an awarding organisation and others interested in awarding.

Speakers at the FAB conference will provide you with the latest industry information and as usual we have a selection of seminars providing the opportunity to discuss issues.

The FAB Awards dinner, now in its third year, is taking place on the evening of the first day of the conference.
