MIMS Learning Live 2020

MIMS Learning and our parent company Haymarket Media Group are updating our group event activity inline with guidance from the World Health Organization and to reflect local government guidelines to keep all of our participants and teams safe. For MIMS Learning Live, we are also acutely aware of the impact of the pandemic on our speakers and delegation who are on the forefront of this crisis. We know how important MIMS Learning Live is to our community so we are working through all options for both our North event in Leeds on the 15th May and our London event in Olympia on the 26th June and will update you as soon as we are able. To support your ongoing needs for CPD please visit MIMS Learning which offers a wide range of modules to suit your learning needs.
