  • 9th Euroforum, in association with SPE Aberdeen

    Due to government guidelines and the ongoing pandemic we are postponing the date for the Euroforum to 16 - 18 March 2021 at Ardoe House Hotel, Aberdeen.  We feel this will make for a more successful event, retaining the exhibition and networking elements of previous Euroforums.

    The pre conference workshop will take place on Tuesday 16 March and the main forum on 17 & 18 March 2021. We hope that the schedule will remain largely the same as previously advertised but will update you as soon as we can.

    For those who booked to attend, exhibit, sponsor or present you will be hearing from us very shortly.
