Other highlights of the conference include a number of book launches and a conference dinner on the Thames. The dinner, on the evening of Wednesday 19th September, will be held on a paddle boat steamer, The Dixie Queen, and will include an opportunity to see the opening of Tower Bridge and the Thames Barrier.
