26th DAWN AC User Group – 2018

In order to provide a UK User Group meeting that remains relevant and accessible and to enable us to connect with a larger number of our customers, this year we held two one-day regional user groups – one in the Midlands and one in London.

A big thank you to all of the speakers and delegates who attended the event, making it such a success.
