We are excited to announce that this year’s annual forum keynote speaker will be local lad ‘Blind Dave’. His talk will be just one of the highlights of our yearly event, to be held on Monday 18 November at Portway Lifestyle Centre, Newbury Lane, Oldbury B69 1HE.
We also welcome the Mayor of Sandwell who will open the day, news on SVI’s fantastic partner working with Serco and a range of interesting exhibitors. There will be a raffle to help raise funds for SVI.
After lunch, you can browse the stands, take part in interactive workshops or just relax and chat with friends.
The Annual Forum also provides you with the opportunity to take an active part in our work. If you are a member of SVI CIO you can choose your representatives on the Board of Trustees.
We hope you will be able to join us.
