The National Association of British Schools in Spain will hold its 37th Annual Conference from the 5th to the 8thth of March 2015 in Malaga. Our conference will be held in the Hotel IPV Palace, Fuengirola and the theme of this year´s conference is “Learning today, Leading tomorrow”. UK Trade and Investment (UKTI) and the British Embassy will once again support NABSS inthe organisation of the exhibition.
The programme will commence with our Gala Dinner for Heads, Owners and Guests, an ideal introduction to our event and an opportunity to enjoy the wonderful setting of our Conference Hotel. The following day, which is dedicated to heads and owners of schools, will include the opening ceremony and tour of the Education Village followed by presentations from key speakers from both the Department for Education and the Spanish Ministry of Education. Thereafter, there will be an interesting programme of professional development for senior leaders and teachers, ensuring that we are well informed and kept up-to-date with the latest developments, reforms and trends in education. At the same time, authorised representatives of member schools will attend the Annual General Meeting.
The exhibition has always formed an integral part of our conference and, once again, together with UKTI, we shall present our “Education Village”, where we will welcome those companies which have staunchly supported us over the years and also the new companies which may be joining us for the first time. The annual conference provides ample opportunity for networking and social events this year will include our gala dinner, a tour of Malaga, buffet lunches and coffee breaks in the exhibition area, cocktails and the presentation of awards ceremony.
The venue chosen for this event is the 4* Hotel IPV Palace, Fuengirola. It is a seaside hotel with stunning views located next to the gardens of the Castle of Sohail. The hotel has an ideal location with 300 metres of beach almost exclusively for hotel guests. It is 20 minutes away from Malaga International Airport and a few kilometres away from Marbella. We urge you to mark the dates in your diary. Hotel reservations and conference booking forms will be available shortly.
