Macmillan Professionals Conference

An annual conference exclusively for Macmillan professionals to network, share and develop.

Each year, hundreds of Macmillan professionals get together from across the UK to explore and share ideas, network and inspire each other. Professional development and working together are the foundations of the conference which has grown in scope and size since 2007. A highlight each year is the Macmillan Professionals Excellence Award ceremony, where winners of our prestigious awards are announced.

The 2017 conference took place on 15-17 November in Heathrow, London. The dates for next year’s conference are 7-9 November 2018.

Please note the conference is only open to Macmillan professional post-holders.

Registration is not open for the 2018 conference, please check this site for more information in the coming months.

I left the conference feeling very much part of a larger community, supporting and improving services for people with cancer.
