The buzz about the 10th Annual Bookkeepers Summit continues to swell as ticket sales start to go crazy...

'Attending the ICB Summit should be at the top of your "must do" list for 2019!' said one of last year's attendees responding anonymously to our Summit Survey. It appears they're right! Unprecedented numbers of bookings have already been taken for the 10th Annual Bookkeepers Summit and the events team is busy curating the best speakers and teasing us with whispers about the 'surprises' they have in store.

On 25 and 26 November we return to the gorgeous Radisson Blu Hotel in Heathrow for two jam-packed days of fun, learning, socialising and eye-opening revelations about your career. Whilst the Radisson is one of Europe's largest conference centres, it's also a place where you instantly feel welcome. You'll have time to get to know your fellow members, enjoy the relaxed atmosphere, and be able to change into your evening attire ready for the glamourous LUCA Awards Dinner on the evening of 25th.  You might even get time to go to the hotel spa.

"I really like the fact it was in a hotel. It was so convenient having everything in the same place!"

The UK's flagship event for bookkeepers kicks off on Sunday 24th with welcome drinks for everyone who's arrived early. Nobody is a stranger at the Bookkeepers Summit, so join us at the bar and get to know everyone! The official Summit programme begins at 10am on the Monday morning. The LUCA Awards Dinner and Afterparty take place on the Monday evening so you can dance the night away. The second day lifts off at 10am on the Tuesday after a delicious breakfast for hotel guests, and we should be all wrapped up ready for home by 4pm.

"Excellent experience, great presentations, fantastic location. Brilliant to meet up with other bookkeepers who are doing exactly the same as you and learn from each other. I gained inspiration, knowledge and friendship. [2018 was the] best Summit I've attended over the last 7 years!"

The ICB Marketing Team has put together a First Class two-day package, to include the Summit, LUCA Dinner, hotel bedroom and all meals and refreshments over the two days, for only £289 per person. And if you want to share a Twin bedroom with a fellow Summiteer, the price per person is £239.50 each (sharing packages must be booked by telephone).

As with last year, the exciting Summit will be split into keynote speakers and workshop sessions. Listen to some of the world’s renowned thought leaders from the bookkeeping profession and then sit back and take in the latest technical briefings from the leading movers and shakers from the profession. This is going to be a thought-provoking two days that will shape you and your profession over the coming years.
