ABOUT

Occupational Therapy Adaptation Conference and Exhibition

OTAC’s sixth event and have we got an event for you!

Tuesday April 25th 2017 we are heading to St. David’s Hotel & Spa, Cardiff Bay for a day packed with the latest equipment and adaptation guidance you will require in your day to day practice.

50 exhibitors within the exhibition hall alongside 10 seminars by well-respected speakers.

We have once again made this opportunity FREE of charge.  There will be fresh tea and coffee throughout the day and plenty of places to relax, network and grab a bite to eat either through the on-site buffet or in the hotels own restaurant.

I hope you take this opportunity to gain valuable knowledge around adaptations and equipment not only for personal development and reflection, but to also to enable you to showcase the value an Occupational Therapist or individual specialising in adaptations for the disabled can bring within housing adaptations regardless of your working environment.

We hope you have a fantastic conference and enjoy networking with other professionals whilst gaining invaluable CPD opportunities for free.
