Following on from the hugely successful 2016 IST Technical Conference in Manchester we are delighted to bring to your attention the IST’s 2017 one day Technical Conference to be held in the Mercure Hotel, Leicester.

** Book early to ensure your place – we were oversubscribed last year and had to close our delegate list early **

The IST provides focused, professional support to a wide group of specialist, technical, and managerial colleagues in a broad range of environments such as science, engineering, arts, industry, local authorities, schools, FE, HE, research/analytical/health facilities, government departments and many more in the UK and overseas.

This one day conference and its workshops will focus on updating technical knowledge, skills, and career development. It will also provide delegates with valuable networking opportunities to engage and learn from other technical staff and other technical supervisors/managers.

Target participants

The conference has been specifically organised for technicians, technologists, technical supervisors, laboratory/service managers and technical managers.


We will shortly share with you the programme details which will include speakers and workshops from a variety of industries, institutions, and professional bodies.


We will again be offering a number of prizes/awards and further detail will be posted here in due course.

The Conference offers an ideal opportunity for suppliers of products/services to develop new influential contacts, promote their products through sponsorship, and to also reinforce existing relationships. Conference suppliers will be engaging with technical staff who directly use their types of services/products, and staff who are likely to be recommending or receiving feedback from their own clients.

Sponsors from last year were very pleased with their experience and all felt that the visits were hugely beneficial. Further information about this year’s Conference follows below:
