This event is for Members of Ukie only. Registrations will be verified.

In September we will bring all members together for a fun, business focused series of activities that will provide insight and support to our members and give members the chance to shape Ukie projects.

The members day is free to attend for all Ukie members and their staff. 

We proactively encourage each member to invite several key staff along to maximise the opportunities of the day.
