HFMA annual conference 2020

HFMA annual conference 2020

12 days of conference - an online festival of learning

30 November 2020 - 11 December 2020

Online, virtual conference



This year the HFMA annual conference was a little bit different as we respond to the challenges and restrictions presented by Covid-19. In order to provide the best and safest experience to our delegates and attendees, we ran an online virtual conference. This meant that we bought you together virtually, over a period of 12 days, with a varied programme whilst providing an enjoyable experience, and opportunities to network with colleagues from across the country. 

The videos from the sessions will be available mid-January. Please note slides and videos will only be available if we have had the speaker’s permission.
