BCAB announces new flagship event

BCAB is delighted to announce plans for our flagship annual event and AGM. It will be held at the Apollo hotel in Birmingham, from the 12th to 14th October 2012.

TechABreak 2012 marks a change for BCAB. Sight Village Plus was our flagship annual event for many years, but with fewer BCAB members attending Sight Village each year, we decided to try something different for 2012.
