ASLI Conference 2024: Reframe, Reset and Refresh

Friday 18 Oct 2024 - Sunday 20 Oct 2024

Imperial Hotel, Blackpool

We are very excited to introduce this year's ASLI Conference, with our theme of 'Reframe, Refresh and Reset'. This is a major event in the UK sign language interpreting calendar, and a welcome chance to get together and enjoy some much needed time away from the treadmill of working life to engage with each other.

We have put together a programme that we believe is both intellectually stimulating and enriching for us as practitioners. If you are a traditional conference goer and want to watch challenging presenters sharing cutting edge research and perspectives, there is plenty for you. If you prefer to take a more relaxed approach, we have sessions that are interactive and those that are reflective and give you space to breathe. You can mix it all up, and enjoy all of the above - we aim for this to be an event that caters for many tastes.

We are very grateful to our sponsors, who will enrich our conference with their vibrant stalls and information.

This conference, let's 'do' our CPD with fresh challenge, engagement and energy.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

Tessa & the ASLI Conference Team
