SENSE Conferences and PDDs

The SENSE strategy is to organize conferences and professional development days in alternate years. The first SENSE conference was held in Utrecht in 2015 to mark 25 years of SENSE.

SENSE held its next conference in 2018 in ’s Hertogenbosch. The conference started on Saturday with lunch and closed on Sunday at lunch time. The programme also included pre-conference workshops and off-conference activities.

SENSE is getting ready to launch registration for the 2020 conference which will also mark SENSE's 30th anniversary. 

The SENSE 2020 Jubilee Conference will be taking place from 6 to 7 June 2020 in Maastricht (or Mestreech to the locals). English-language professionals will come and gather in the city on the Meuse under the theme ‘20/20 (Re)Vision: Honing our skills to meet market challenges’. Expect intensive workshops on the Friday (5 June), off-conference activities on Saturday morning, a programme of talks with parallel sessions on Saturday afternoon, culminating in pre-dinner drinks, or a ‘borrel’ as they say in Dutch, and the gala dinner that evening. Then we will pick up again on Sunday morning (not too early, don’t worry), leaving the afternoon for some leisure time.

The internal Professional Development Day (PDD) is a one-day conference by SENSE members for members and non-members of SENSE. Click here for information about the 2019 PDD.

The next PDD will be held in September 2021.
