The conference entitled, ‘21st Century Conveyancing for 21st Century Clients’, is headlined sponsored by CA Affiliate member, Infotrack, and will offer delegates a range of presentations and debates designed to outline the future for the industry and how conveyancing firms can make the most of the forthcoming changes and opportunities that will exist.
