Join us for the hotly-anticipated climax of 2018. The Bookkeepers Summit on 26 and 27 November is the ultimate event for bookkeepers who want to stay at the top of their game.

Now in its 9th year, this two-day event will give you industry insight, regulatory updates, thought leadership and the chance to meet up and get motivated with your peers.

By popular request, this year’s venue is a hotel; the beautiful Radisson Blu Edwardian in London Heathrow. The Ultimate Bundle all inclusive ticket is just £319 (£278 for ICB students & members) and gets you into all the events of the Summit and includes your Luca Awards Dinner and Dancing, overnight accommodation on 26 November and breakfast on 27 November. All tickets for the Summit include a hot lunch and tea and coffee throughout the day.

If you’re coming with a fellow student or member, and wish to share a Twin Room, you can take advantage of the Ultimate Bundle for Two which is available for just £459, saving you each £48.50 compared to buying the bundle separately.

Eye opening and totally inspirational. The Summit keeps me going for the next year.

The beautiful Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in Heathrow is one of Europe’s largest conference centres, combining dramatic spaces and distinctive design. Heathrow is 15 miles west of Central London and easily reached by road or public transport. There will be a shuttle bus running at the beginning and end of each day to take you to the nearest mainline and tube station.

The Summit provided everything I was hoping for. I was informed, motivated, and gained contacts - ticked all my boxes!! Looking forward to next year already.
