SIGBI Annual Conference 2017 – Cardiff @ Wales Millennium Center
Oct 26 – Saturday all-day

The 2017 conference will be held in Cardiff at the iconic Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay.

Cardiff Bay offers lots of things to do – eateries, bars, boat trips and cultural attractions; and you are only a short distance from Cardiff City Centre which offers a fantastic shopping experience so come early and make the most of your stay in Wales.

The conference theme, Step Up, Lead the Way was chosen to encourage all of us to lead the way in terms of growing our organisation and securing its future.

 

Join us for this unique once-a-year event as hundreds of members come together to share experiences, get inspired and celebrate what being a Soroptimist really means.
