In previous years we’ve held an annual conference in London; in 2015 we were excited to offer something different with three regional roadshows in:

  • London on 19th March
  • Birmingham on 21st April
  • Edinburgh on 23rd April.

Highlights of the Roadshow

  • Drinkaware monitor - UK Survey of Drinking Behaviours and Attitudes, presented by Dr John Larson, Director of Research and Impact
  • Tackling Alcohol Related Harms in the Night Time Economy, presented by Fiona Seymour, Director of Marketing
  • Driving Behaviour Change though Digital, presented by Ben Butler, Head of Digital
  • A chance to meet the Drinkaware team

An open invitation was sent to all our funders and as many partners as we could accommodate.

Social media coverage

Live commentary of the event was posted on Twitter @Drinkaware and delegates and speakers were invited to use the hashtag #Drinkaware15 to comment on the day’s themes and debates.
