Celebrating Success: The NAS & IOC Members’ Day & AGM 2024

On 27th March 2024, Carpenters’ Hall in London played host to the NAS & IOC Members’ Day & AGM. The day served as a pivotal gathering where members could connect, exchange ideas, and keep up to date on industry trends and innovations. This year’s event was particularly significant, showcasing our resilience and adaptability in the face of challenging industry conditions.
