A day of debates, talks and discussions about the future of Europeans and the impact of Brexit might have on us all.

Because of all the noise created by the media and politicians, it can be difficult to ascertain what is likely to happen to Europeans, to the economy, to business and to trading with the European Union. This has become a vicious circle leading to even more uncertainty and confusion. This event has been designed to filter out the noise and help you understand the real underlying position.

In the Main Hall, lawyers, tax and business advisers will be available to answer all your questions and for the day's events in the Auditorium, they have assembled an extraordinary collection of experts, politicians, journalists and activists who will address the critical issues and help you work out what is best for you, your family and your business.
