2020 Development Conference Date Announced

British Orienteering is pleased to confirm the date of the next National Development Conference. Taking place over the weekend of Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th January 2020, the conference promises to inspire members and clubs across the country to help drive orienteering forward. The weekend and subjects will all be focused on ‘Making Development Work For You’. 

The conference will be taking place at the YHA National Forest, Swadlincote, near Burton on Trent and has secured exclusive use of the venue. This will allow members to stay overnight with fellow orienteers to really add the social atmosphere and providing an excellent opportunity for networking.

The agenda, keynote speakers, delegate prices and how to secure your place will be confirmed in due course.  Members will be able to book a place from mid-August with places limited so keep an eye out and book early. 

As part of the conference, we will be looking to share some great projects from clubs across the country. If you want to share your story get in touch with Peter Brooke on
