ACL Annual Costs Conference - Manchester

The ACL Annual Manchester Costs Conference will be held on Friday 18 May 2018

This year’s ACL Manchester Conference will give costs practitioners the inside track on the big issues they are facing – including the electronic bill of costs – and the chance to quiz a host of judges

Along with the chance to network with your peers, it promises to be a day of insight and learning that should not be missed

Join us for networking drinks after the seminar in Cloud 23 Cocktail Bar on the 23rd floor of the legendary Beetham Tower.
