21st RRC Annual Network Conference

River Restoration: scaling up our ambition

Online, 9th & 10th September 2020
COVID-19 Update - 21/7/2020 
Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have postponed the Conference until 9th & 10th September. We have been closely following national advice and developments to see how these will affect the event. There has been a lot of uncertainty and concern about face-to-face events, and as of last week the Government has stated that events the size of this can only begin after 1st October.

For that reason, we have made the decision to hold the conference wholly online over the same two days, Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th September. There is likely to be a new format to the conference programme, and this will be updated over the next few weeks. Join our mailing list to ensure you are amongst the first to hear all Conference news & information.


We are working on making this year's conference as engaging and interactive as ever, with:

  • A packed programme full of interesting presentations - View the draft programme
  • Live Q&A sessions to interact with the speakers
  • Interactive workshops to discuss key topics
  • Networking rooms to make new contacts and speak to old friends

Already booked?

If you have already booked, you will automatically be booked onto the online conference. To reflect the change from a face-to-face event to one hosted online we are reducing the fees by 50%. For many of you we understand that any refund will be subsumed into an organisation/ corporate/ government/ training budget. So we are offering to roll over this refund of 50% to the next RRC April conference 2021 which will be at the same venue in Harrogate on 27th & 28th April 2021.

We are keeping the conference fees the same for next year, so you will have paid half of your next attendance fee already. You can pass this pre-booking onto anyone else by informing us during the booking process for the 2021 event. If you have any questions about the status of your current booking or the reduction in fees, please contact us.


If you have booked accommodation directly with the hotel, please contact them to discuss the status of your booking on 01423 700300 option 2 or 1 or email reservations@doubletree-harrogate.co.ukYou will be entitled to a full refund for your room. 

Conference presenters

If you were due to present at the face-to-face conference in Harrogate, you should have received an email about presenting at the online conference. Detailed presenter guidelines will be released shortly.

Poster presenters are also being invited to present their posters online. We are offering a number of options, including: creating your own online meeting room so that delegates can drop in to discuss your poster; producing a short video to explain your poster; or simply emailing a PDF of your poster for others to view. Please contact us if you would like more information.
