The conference, taking place from 6-8 October, will be the Institute’s fifth year at the venue. The three-day event attracts around 1,000 delegates and is complemented by an exhibition with more than 50 exhibitors and a performance awards gala dinner attended 600 guests.
On the first day, delegates will take part in a series of plenary sessions with the second day devoted to three professional streams: Local Taxation and Revenues, Benefits, and Valuation. The gala dinner will be held that evening, with the final morning consisting of a general update on all the latest developments in the profession.
Gary Watson, deputy chief executive of the IRRV, said: "We chose Telford for our event because of its central location and the convenient travel links. It’s also great to find a venue with on-site hotel accommodation and which is flexible enough to allow us to combine a conference and a gala dinner."
The International Centre has welcomed several new events this year including BASK (British Association for Surgery of the Knee), The Dental Technology Show, and the FLTA gala dinner.
More new events are on the way with the The British Oncology Pharmacy Association (BOPA) and the UK Dementia Congress both taking place over the coming months.
The venue has recently appointed a new sales manager, Adam Brookes, to focus on bringing in new national association and exhibition event business.
