SAPCA Annual Conference and Awards Dinner 2024

The SAPCA Annual Conference & Awards Dinner will take place on Thursday 29 February 2024 at Mattioli Woods Welford Road Stadium, Leicester – the home of Leicester Tigers RFC.

The one-day conference will feature a diverse educational programme and a wide range of high-profile speakers. The event will be hosted by Olympic silver medalist and former Badminton world champion, Gail Emms MBE, and delegates will also hear a keynote from Maggie Alphonsi MBE, the popular TV pundit and former England Rugby International.

The full conference programme will be announced in early 2024.

Introducing the SAPCA Awards Dinner 2024

The Conference will be followed by the first ever SAPCA Awards Dinner. The event will take place at the Mattioli Stadium, with pre-dinner drinks served at the Brooklyn Hotel.

The dinner provides a great opportunity for networking and for celebrating the quality and excellence of SAPCA members and their work. During the evening, the winners of the SAPCA Awards 2024 will be announced and delegates will also be treated to an after-dinner Q&A session with England and Leicester Tigers legend, Martin Johnson CBE.
