See you there!


We have a packed programme over the two days of #ARMA2019, starting with welcome drinks and the famous ARMA Quiz on Sunday evening. Conference sessions kick off at 9.45am on Monday morning, with our first plenary after the coffee break at 11.30. You’ll find an overview of our programme in this guide, so take the time to familiarise yourselves with all the opportunities on offer.

As well as the familiar sessions, we’ve added in shorter workshops, PechaKucha presentations, ‘meet the speaker’ sessions and poster presentations. We’ll also be using in our plenary sessions to encourage questions, so there’s no need to be shy. Get your thinking caps on and ask what you want to know.

You can find all the details, including how to register for each session, in the conference app.
