Weighing up whether to attend the ARA Annual Conference at Manchester 30 August to 1 September? Again this year we will have a fully dedicated digital archives and preservation stream, plus the expanded information village, where we will be joined by representatives from sectoral bodies. The Conference committee and its partners have again worked overtime to keep delegate costs as low as possible. Pound for pound (or Euro for Euro), the ARA Conference offers better value than all other comparable bodies in the sector. And we will again be subsidising the headline costs in 2017 through our conference sponsorship programmes.This annual event brings together the influential players of the recordkeeping sector. High profile speakers discuss latest developments and delegates can network with fellow members of the community.  We believe the programme below delivers our intended theme and will ‘Challenge the Past. Set the Agenda.’
