MSA GB National Conference

MSA GB National Conference

With regret, we have had to take the decision to move our face-to-face conference, AGM and awards this year to an online event. If you would like to attend, the virtual event, it will take place between 10am -1pm on the 11th March, via ZOOM.  Please reply to  with the email address you would like us to use, and we will send you the joining instructions nearer the time.

Apologies for the obvious disappointment in not having a face-to-face event, but it seems that in this post-COVID era, there is still a preference for online rather than in-person events of this kind. Please be reassured that despite moving to a virtual format, this is still an incredible opportunity to hear the latest industry news and harness the knowledge of our expert line up of senior DVSA and industry representatives.
