CIfA2018 Pulling together: collaboration, synthesis, innovation

Annual training event and conference

25 to 27 April 2018, Brighton Racecourse

Sponsored by Towergate Insurance.

Keep up to date with the latest conference news via our eBulletin and on Twitter #CIfA2018.

The theme for our 2018 Conference is Pulling together: collaboration, synthesis, innovation. The event will provide an opportunity for heritage professionals to discuss, consider and learn about ways in which the archaeological profession can work together - and with others - to develop innovative and exciting projects that have wide reaching benefit and become ‘greater than the sum of their parts’.

Call for Sessions – CLOSED

Sponsorship, exhibition and advertising opportunities

The Conference also offers opportunities for businesses and organisations to promote their work to the archaeological sector. In recent years our exhibition hall has proven to be a great success and so we now offer an early opportunity for you to let us know if you are interested in sponsorship, exhibition or advertising opportunities ranging from adding leaflets to bags and advertisements in the conference programme, to exhibiting in our main hall, sponsoring sessions and fringe events.
Please contact conference [at] for more information.

Conference Bursaries

In 2018 it is anticipated that there will be two opportunities to apply for bursaries to help with the cost of attending Conference.
