This year’s Fundraising Convention, from the Chartered Institute of Fundraising, is to be held in a new location – the QEII Centre – with early bird tickets available until the end of this month.
The event moves from the Barbican, and will take place on 3-4 July. Showcasing best practices from across the sector, there will be plenaries, talks, panel debates, 1-2-1 surgeries, and facilitated networking, as well as a range of sessions for personal growth, including building your network, 1-2-1 career advice, ‘Rising Stars – showcasing new ideas’ and ‘Lightning Talks – fast and snappy presentations to assist you in your fundraising endeavours’.
This year’s specialist learning tracks will be on: career development and leadership; legacies and in-memoriam giving; public fundraising and mass engagement; strategy, innovation, and income generation; supporter insight and research, and trusts, philanthropy and partnerships.
Early bird tickets offer 20% off until 5pm on 31 March. There are in-person and virtual tickets available, and as before, bursaries are also on offer.
