SRP Events Update

7th European IRPA Congress to be held in Liverpool in 2026
It was confirmed at the 6th European Congress in Budapest this summer that SRP has been successful in its bid to host the next European Congress in the UK . It will be held at the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool on 1-5 June 2026 . With so much to do in Liverpool and , of course the birth place of The Beatles , it ' s the perfect city to hold the Congress ; plus it ' s just been chosen for the Eurovision Song Contest next year .
The Events Committee has been working hard to produce a jam-packed programme , whilst continuing to provide free one-hour lunch time webinars .
SRP ' s 2023 Events Programme
Along with this exciting news , SRP celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2023 and the Annual Conference will take place in Aberdeen at Scotland ’ s newest state-of-the art events venue : P & J Live – The Event Complex . The programme will include the Young Professionals Award , the winner of which will travel to the World IRPA Congress in Florida ( IRPA16 , July 2024 ) to represent the UK in the international competition . Numbers attending our events are now back to pre-covid levels but we are also keen to offer online access to the Annual Conference programme for those not able to attend in person ; this also means that all delegates can view sessions they miss ( e . g . parallel sessions ) after the event .
