Inclusion is re-launching the Welfare to Work Convention.

In 2014 it will be called the IntoWork Convention and will be for everyone involved in helping people find work, keep work and progress in work. The IntoWork Convention will be larger and more interactive showcasing ‘what works’ in employment, skills, health and for disadvantaged people.

The IntoWork Convention is the event of the year, profiling the best creativity and innovation in the field. High-profile challenging speakers and a wealth of break-out sessions, the IntoWork Convention will provide you with the ideas and contacts for the future.

IntoWork 2014 will be the place to network and forge new partnerships across health, skills, and justice. An expanded exhibition will be the centre piece of a more interactive event – dedicated to joining-up services for employability and jobseeking.

IntoWork 2014 is being hosted in the City of Liverpool and is supported by the International Festival of Business running in Liverpool at the same time. A new fringe learning and networking programme will be held in venues across central Liverpool and the main Convention will be in the popular ACC Liverpool. We have reduced delegate prices – more for less and delivering value for money.

IntoWork Convention will build on the Welfare to Work Convention – delivering the highest quality content for the annual landmark event.

Registrations are now open, we look forward to seeing you in July!
