Annual Conference 2022

The ADCS Annual conference, exclusively for ADCS members, provides a unique opportunity to come together to share best practice, learning, and experiences from across the sector. If you are a new member, or indeed a newly appointed DCS, and you’ve never attended the conference before, we encourage you to book your place and participate. The conference will be held entirely in-person at The Midland Hotel in Manchester, with all sessions held face-to-face; unfortunately, it is not possible to attend any sessions online.

Booking Update

We have now reached maximum capacity for the venue and therefore cannot accept any further bookings for conference places on Thursday and Friday. This applies to both day delegate places and overnight accommodation.

For those DCSs who have not yet booked their place and solely wish to attend the DCS-only aspect of the conference (from 11.45am on Wednesday 6 July until 10.30am on Thursday 7 July), we do have small number of places available for the DCS-only sessions. Please contact ADCS Rebecca Denny, in the first instance.


Further information on sessions and speakers can be found on the outline programme.
