The RTPI’s Young Planners Conference 2016, has been shortlisted for Best Association Conference at the Conference Awards 2017. These prestigious annual awards recognise excellence and innovation in events.
Stephen Wilkinson, RTPI President, said:
"Our shortlisting demonstrates the professionalism and creativity of the Institute in promoting planning as a career and its value to communities and I congratulate all those involved in making the conference such a great success.
“Speaking at the Young Planners Conference last year, I saw the enthusiasm which our staff, volunteers and members have for championing the profession. The conference is always run effectively, to a high standard often within tight time and budget constraints. I am very proud of them. ”
The RTPI Young Planners Conference is an annual event which brings together the newest members of our profession from across the UK. The conference was also recently shortlisted at The Association Excellence Awards 2017.
