usha conf 2019


Dear USHA Member,

Exciting news as planning is now well underway for the new look USHA 2019 Annual Conference.

You will probably already have the date in your diary, but as a reminder, the conference will be taking place between 23-25 April 2019 at the Centre for Life in Newcastle.

What’s new for 2019?

This year, the event consolidates the Spring and Estates conferences; however, the programme will run over two rather than three days.

With an engaging programme that will be showcasing stimulating Keynote sessions and opportunities to attend specialist workshops, the conference promises to leave delegates better-informed and thinking differently. Further details will be publicised shortly.

We know that there is also great value in the space between the sessions, which is why we’ve made sure the conference provides the best and most convenient networking opportunity of the year, where you’ll be able to share social time with colleagues across two evening meals.

Better still, by combining the two events we have managed to reduce the early bird rate by £100 to only £399!

We have also appointed Assured Events as our event delivery partner on this conference. They will be opening the booking website in January but if you register your interest in attending via the link below, they will be in touch when delegate bookings open. But for now, please make sure that you have saved the date!

Please note: future correspondence regarding the conference will come from the following email address: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Newcastle.

Kind regards
