The conference will be held at the Magna Science Adventure Centre in Rotherham, near Sheffield, and will feature an expanded exhibitor hall and greater delegate capacity. As well as a great range of exhibitors from throughout the climbing industry, including wall and hold manufacturers, distributors, equipment manufacturers, and much more, the conference will also contain a variety of exciting workshops and speakers – including Hazel Findlay and Gavin Scott.

Hazel will be delivering a talk on the power of the mind in climbing, using examples from her epic adventures and big climbing projects from around the world. Her talk will be surrounding the question; “what would the experience of climbing be like if we weren’t afraid to fall, or to fail?” And what better person to be discussing the topic of fear and head game than the first British woman to climb E9 trad?! Other talks and workshops will cover topics such as Customer Service 101 with author and podcaster Gavin Scott, Staff Retention, Routesetting, Maintaining Quality Standards, Sustainability and Your Wall, and Claims Defensibility with Partners&.
