Important notice: ARMA 2020 postponed

ARMA has been closely monitoring developments surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19. The safety of attendees and partners is our number one priority and the difficult but unavoidable decision has been taken to postpone ARMA 2020. We are however pleased to announce that ‘ARMA 2020: Pathways to Inclusion > Driving Change’ will now take place Thursday 17th to Friday 18th June 2021 at the same venue, ICC Wales. This conference website will be updated shortly but in the meantime please be assured the conference programme and speaker line-up will remain largely unchanged for ARMA 2021.


Venue & Accommodation

ARMA 2020 takes place at the brand new International Convention Centre Wales (ICC Wales). Built within acres of stunning woodland on the Celtic Manor complex, yet a stone’s throw from the M4 Newport, the venue is supported by a strong network of hotels, self-catering accommodation and guest houses to suit a range of budgets.
