As Chairman of the LUCID Organising Committee and following months of hard work, I am really excited that LUCID is finally here.  So what can LUCID 2017 promise you?

With over 65 companies represented and well over 300 delegates due to attend from across the UK, Ireland, Europe, South Africa, Caribbean and as far afield as Australia, LUCID 2017 promises to be one of the best ever attended LUCID events.

We have a programme that is full of content, delivered by expert speakers in their field, covering a number of topical areas impacting our industry now or that will do in the future.

With the main room plenary sessions complemented by a variety of interactive breakout sessions, there will be plenty of material for all our delegates.

There will also be ample opportunity for attendees to network and socialise with friends and colleagues in our full exhibition area, where you will have the chance to visit our sponsors exhibition stands, or at our LUCID sponsored cheese and wine tasting event to be held in the Palm Court Room on Sunday 1 October 2017. There will be further opportunity for networking at our formal gala conference dinner, which this year will be held at the Bristol Aquarium and We The Curious, formerly known as @Bristol Science Centre.

As in previous years, LUCID has gone green and printed copies of the programme will not be provided. Full details of the programme along with information on our expert speakers can be found on the LUCID website or on the LUCID App. If you have not already done so, please ensure you download the latest version of the Conference App by searching for LUCID Conference on your iPhone or iPad in the App store or for an Android version, you can search and download this via the Play Store

For those of you on Twitter, we will be tweeting LUCID notices and updates throughout the conference. Therefore we would encourage you to follow us on Twitter (@LUCIDconference) and share your own tweets and experiences with your fellow attendees #LUCID2017 

 The LUCID team and I look forward to welcoming all attendees throughout the course of the conference.

Conference Charity:

LUCID are pleased to announce that the chosen conference charity this year is The Grand Appeal, The Bristol Children’s Hospital Charity, with the aim to raise much needed funds and help improve the lives of sick children and their families at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

A huge thank you to everyone who sponsored the LUCID team at this year’s Bristol 10k. We raised a tremendous £2,162.41. This money will help The Grand Appeal save lives and support sick babies and children at Bristol Children’s Hospital.

If you’re coming along to LUCID this year you can catch up with the Grand Appeal team and hear more about the great work they do.
