We have decided NOT to run the Conference in Stevenage this year however Life Connections are holding a First Aid Conference in Aylesbury on Thursday 6th September 2018 (which is not that far from Stevenage) where there will be a presence from FOFATO/FAIB. (See below information)

Following our previous message in March 2018 and following our attendance at the Life Connections (Harrogate, North Yorkshire) Conference in March 2018, the First Aid Industry Body are pleased to announce that we have made an agreement to work with Terry Gardner of Life Connections in order to offer a number of Regional Conferences across the United Kingdom starting in 2019.

Life Connections have been involved in many successful Conferences across the United Kingdom for a number of years.

The Life Connections concept is to run a number of Conferences and workshops (First Aid, First Responder, Resuscitation and Paramedic) in the same venue and on the same day.

This concept allows greater numbers to attend and to spend time looking around the Exhibitors (as well as Networking) who are situated in the main hall of the venue.

FOFATO/FAIB Conferences have usually only included a small number of Exhibitors however using the Life Connections concept we will be able to include many more.

We have always received very good feedback from the FOFATO/FAIB Conferences and are therefore not going to change the way they are run. However working with Life Connections it will give us the opportunity to include workshops and practical sessions.

FOFATO/FAIB have agreed to promote the Life Connections First Aid Conferences in 2018 in Aylesbury on Thursday 6th September 2018 and in Stoke-on-Trent on Thursday 25th October 2018. FOFATO/FAIB will also be attending the Aylesbury and Stoke-on-Trent Conferences in 2018.

If you wish to book a place at any of the Life Connections Conferences then please contact Terry Gardner on 01322 660434 or visit www.lifeconnections.uk.com for further information.
We will let you know as soon as we have the dates and venues for the 2019 Conferences and as always would like you to let us have your thoughts and ideas about the topics or guest speakers that you would like us to include.
