Event Details

TRAC Practitioners Conference 2017:  'Meeting the Challenge - TRAC Tools and Insight for a Sustainable Future'. 

The TRAC Development Group (TDG) is pleased to announce that their 2017 conference for TRAC practitioners will take place on Monday 25th September and will be held at Mary Ward House,Tavistock Place, London.  The delegate fee is £195.

In light of the developments taking place regarding regulation, updated TRAC requirements to reflect the learnings from FRS 102, the potential adoption of the Margin for Sustainability and Investment and delivery of the TDG projects, the conference theme this year is ‘Meeting the challenge – TRAC Tools and Insight for a sustainable future’.  Following previous experience and the feedback received, the conference will combine key note speeches from stakeholders with practical break-out sessions and debate.  Delegates will further their understanding of issues affecting sustainability and how the TRAC guidance is impacted by the change, together with a focus on gaining greater utility from TRAC data.

The conference will provide an opportunity to hear from a range of institutions on their approaches to key aspects of the TRAC process; to learn about good practice; and network with colleagues from across the UK.

Registration will take place from 9.30am ready for a 10.00am start and an approx finish time of 4.30pm.
