Planned Events

cpd25 are planning to host the following events and visits. Once dates have been confirmed, these will be added to the Events Calendar where bookings can be made:


Annual SLA Conference
We were hoping to hold our 13th SLA conference this summer, but have had to postpone it because of the current circumstances. It’s a highlight of the cpd25 calendar and is very popular, with some SLAs attending regularly. Don’t worry, we’re already planning the conference for next year (possibly a bit earlier than usual) and promise it will be as good as ever!
