If you are not already registered for the event, you can do it here.  

As it's a virtual event, the activities will be available for a period beyond these dates, so if you miss a session you have longer to catch up and connect with colleagues. At TRL we will be manning our virtual booth, where we have TRL experts available for meetings. When the event starts, you can view our booth and book meetings once you have registered. Throughout the event we are involved in a number of sessions which you can book to attend as soon as you register.

 The full agenda can be found here.
