Cycle Conference 2018 - FULLY BOOKED!

The Events Team are always looking for new and exciting events for our dentists and practice teams to enjoy. After the extremely successful Ski Conference and the Golf Conference launching last year, we are expanding our range of overseas events and we are delighted to announce the launch of the Cycle Conference.

Taking place in sunny Majorca from Tuesday 17th April to Friday 20th April, join the team for beautiful cycle routes during the day, great lectures and of course amazing hospitality in the evening with the team!

This conference is open for both keen cyclists as well as the more relaxed riders with two different routes of varied lengths and abilities each day so you can choose the route suited to you.

If you would like to bring a partner who would prefer not to cycle, the 5* Zafiro Palace in Alcudia hotel will offer a wide range of facilities for them to relax during the day and join in with the hospitality in the evening.

For lots more information about this event please download the Cycle Conference brochure.

This event is now FULL. If you would like to be added to the waiting list for 2018 or register your interest in the 2019 Cycle Conference,  please contact the Events Team on:
