CIMSPA and Quest NBS Conference venue update

The exterior of Pride Park Stadium

The venue switch has been driven by unplanned refurbishment works at East Midlands Conference Centre that are outside of our control. All existing conference delegates are being contacted directly to manage this location change.

Our new venue in Derby is ideal for the CIMSPA and Quest NBS Conference. The event’s conference keynote sessions will take place in the stadium’s Pedigree Suite, overlooking the pitch, with breakout seminars in linked rooms. On the same level, the stadium’s Toyota Suite will host sponsors, exhibitors and awarding organisation partners in a central networking and catering space.

What hasn’t changed is the event’s great programme of learning, sharing and networking. The day will include conference content for all working in sport and physical activity.

Event highlights
  • Keynote presentations from Tim Hollingsworth, Sport England CEO and David Thomson, behaviour change advocate.
  • The launch of chartered membership for health and activity professionals, including a breakout session on “your journey to chartered status”.
  • Engagement, operations, customer service and benchmarking sessions from Quest NBS to help maximise your service quality.
  • Sector leadership panel exploring collaborative leadership to maximise investment.
  • Learning outcomes from this year’s CIMSPA and Future Fit Training “Raising the Bar” work.
  • HR expert Les Potton on understanding the gig economy landscape.

Advance tickets start from just £100 for CIMSPA members and Quest Assessors. The event is already at two-thirds capacity so be sure to book your tickets as soon as possible to secure your place. A few event sponsorship opportunities remain for organisations looking to engage with the best in the sport and physical activity sector.
