PPMA Annual Conference 2018

Sage Gateshead

19th & 20th April 2018

An event for HR & OD Professionals across Public Service.

We’re delighted to be bringing our PPMA conference to the North East. It’s the first time in our history that we’ve been here and it’s a very welcome return to the North following the great success of the recent Northern HR Forum hosted by our PPMA colleagues at Leeds City Council.

Those of you who attended our very successful Bristol conference will know that we are following the same main stage themes next year. They are still relevant but we want to get a real sense of what will be different by April 2018 and more importantly, what contribution will PPMA (and we as HR & OD professionals) have made to our organisations. There are some changes to our fringe events – we’ve decided to explore some newer emerging themes and we’re excited about that. For example we will be looking at what impact HR & OD has on the use of AI & Robotics in public service workplaces.

Conference this year is a multi-site experience. One of the opportunities of coming to a new location is that there is lots to explore. So in selecting our venues, we canvassed the views of Policy Board members, Past PPMA Presidents, Sponsors and previous delegates and they chose a multi-site option. A multi-site experience gives you more chance to explore and we strongly recommend you to do so.


We have a number of ticket package options available for both PPMA members and non-members.
