play a key role in drawing attention to the great things that can be achieved by those working in social work and social care, but they go even further by providing an important platform for sharing good practice.

winners and their products/solutions will be highlighted, along with other new products on the Exhibits floor, during the Seminar's "What's New on the Floor" session, on Monday, Sept.
points can also be transferred to hotel partner programmes allowing customers to redeem points for free stays at thousands of hotels globally with Starwood, Intercontinental Hotel Group, Hyatt, Hilton, Marriott and Best Western.
