What to expect

The OV Conference is an important event in the calendar for OVs, so we recognised that it was vital for us to adapt in order to help you to continue learning and gaining CPD safely.

Therefore, the 2020 OV Conference – the sixth edition of the event – will take place entirely online. It will be managed within a safe and secure Conference Space, and presentations will be streamed using Zoom. There will be 6 talks per day, and plenty of breaks. You can view the full programme by clicking here.

Delegates will not only be able to join any live presentations, but also watch recordings of those that have already taken place. In addition to this, there will be forums in which to talk to other delegates, as well as exclusive content and offers in our Sponsors’ Area.

We are certain that the OV Conference Online will be just as successful, enjoyable and informative as the face-to-face event would have been.
