Up close and personal
You're unlikely to catch us schmoozing at a black tie do, but you will find us attending worthwhile events in the sector and each year we host our own user group conference. With so many industry events going on it's hard to keep up with the best to put in your diary, here's our pick of the bunch - updated regularly of course!
We've opted for quality rather than quantity when it comes to recommending which events you might be interested in. Please do drop us a line if you are planning to attend any of the events listed below as it would be lovely to catch up and chat about the topics raised.

The International Fundraising Congress 2013
The IFC is the world's showcase for excellence, innovation and inspiration in fundraising with access to the best thinking in fundraising from around the world.The convention offers a varied Masterclass programme for fundraisers at different levels. Some sessions are designed for those with high levels of fundraising responsibility, experience or knowledge and others for those newer to fundraising.
Hospice Care Conference 2013
Bounemouth International Centre
thankQ will once again be sponsoring the Help the Hospices bi-ennial Care Conference which is recognised as one of the key events of the hospice and palliative care calendar.
I would highly recommend taking the time to go to this type of event every year if available. Seeing newer versions of the system in action along with networking with other users about how they do things - their gripes, and their triumphs - we get an ongoing sense of how we can improve in practical terms and an influence on the future direction of the product.
