The conference provides a unique forum to meet and exchange information with representatives from all disciplines associated with AAC, including people who use AAC, parents, carers, professionals and suppliers of AAC equipment. Communication Matters encourages and supports people who use AAC to attend. This year's conference will be held at the University of Leeds, a prestigious "world class" conference venue. Integral to the conference will be the supplier exhibition in Parkinson Court, with a cafe and lounge area for delegates. Residential accommodation will be in the Storm Jameson Court hall of residence, which is at the centre of the pedestrianised campus and a short distance from the seminar rooms, dining room and exhibition. The transport links to Leeds are very good, with a nearby airport and train station. The conference will open on Sunday 9th Sept at 1pm for registration. The last session on Tuesday 11th Sept will be at approx 3.30pm followed by tea/coffee. There are normally over 400 attendees at the conference, which will include 80+ presentations, a very popular exhibition of the UK's leading suppliers of AAC products, social events and more.
