Both meat and vegetarian options will be available. We regret that due to the size of the event, we are unable to cater for individual dietary requirements and cannot guarantee food will be free from allergens. We therefore recommend those with special dietary needs should bring their own lunch.

Delegates will be educated and inspired about the latest developments in physical activity for health. The aim of the conference is to promote Exercise as Medicine and to highlight the importance of physical activity across a range of areas.
