Event description


24th Annual Conference
SPG 2020 – Clear Vision for the future
Barceló Málaga, Calle Héroe de Sostoa, 2, 29002 Málaga, Spain

All sole practitioner solicitors are invited to join us at our Annual Conference weekend. We also invite members of small firms who will find our event extremely useful and an economical way to achieve training objectives. As with previous conferences, you are most welcome to bring family members to enjoy the social side of the weekend.

2020’s Annual Conference will be in the glamourous and historic city of Málaga on the edge of the Mediterranean Sea. More than 3,000 years of history have passed since Málaga's establishment by the Phoenicians up to achieving the beautiful, friendly and cosmopolitan city that enchants tourists from all over the world today.

The Roman Theatre and garum (Roman fish paste) pools will take you to the times of Roman Hispania. Meanwhile, the Alcazaba is the most beautiful living example of the period of Muslim domination. Experience the reconquest (La Reconquista) by the Catholic Monarchs from the Santuario de la Victoria (the Shrine of Victory). Or stroll along Calle San Agustín, formerly known as the Calle de los Caballeros, the street of the knights since they settled on this street, with the Palacio de Buenavista as its most significant feature. Visit the Cathedral and see real works of art. Stroll down Málaga's main street and learn more about the Marqués de Larios. Admire buildings of different ages and be enthralled by the stories that the city can tell.

The conference will start on Friday 5th June 2020 with three exciting optional events, a morning golf competition, an afternoon tour of Málaga City and our Drinks and Tapas Reception at the Carmen Thyssen Museum. The reception at the Carmen Thyssen Museum is for adults only and is your opportunity to network with national and international colleagues.

Saturday and Sunday daytime will be full of presentations by eminent guest speakers, covering everything you need to know as a Sole Practitioner. Representatives from The Law Society, SRA and Legal Ombudsman have all been invited to attend, use this opportunity to have your voice heard.

Our Fiesta on Saturday evening promises to excite, featuring authentic Spanish cuisine and entertainment, party the night away in Spanish style.

This is a conference not to be missed!
