Our annual convention
6th-8th October at Delta Hotels by Marriott, Warwick
Our convention is back! Join us for our weekend-long event of learning and support for families affected by rare growth conditions. We’re already so excited for this year’s event and we’d love to see you there.
This year’s event will be returning to Delta Hotels by Marriott, Warwick and as the event is being held in October we have set the spooktacular theme of….Halloween!
Booking now open!
You can now book online to join us here.
If you would like an offline version of the booking form please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Members booking to attend convention will receive a free member goody bag at the event. New for 2023, convention is also open to non-members.
We hope by opening the event to non-members too we can reach as many people as possible, to support even more children, adults and families affected by growth conditions.
With a range of topics, sessions and conditions covered in our packed agenda, we have a super line up of speakers including parents and patients, alongside Stephanie Yin of Rareminds, Dr Hayley Trower of Cerebra Network, CGF Chair Jeff Bolton, Professor Helen L Storr, Dr Emma Wakeling, Professor Justin Davies, Professor John W Gregory, Martine Monksfield, Professor Stephen Shalet and more!
Specific sessions for:
-SGA & IUGR
-Sotos & Overgrowth
You can join the Saturday daytime to attend our various sessions, or alternatively make a weekend of it and join for Friday and/or Saturday evenings too. New for 2023 we also have bookable sessions with our nursing team on the Sunday morning.
We have kept our convention attendee rates the same as 2022 and hope to see familiar faces and new families too joining as we all come together for our special CGF weekend.
You can choose to make a weekend of the event, staying on Friday and/or Saturday evening. However, you can also join for the Saturday daytime only if preferred for £15 for an adult Saturday daytime place, free daytime registration children, and childcare places costing £25 each.
For those arriving on the Friday evening we will have entertainment provided. We will have activities planned for children and young people throughout the Saturday at our creche and youth group, alongside our sessions run by experts and specialists who will present, discuss and answer any questions on many topics, including updates on any latest research and treatment options.
There will also be plenty of time for networking and socialising with others, and we’re so pleased that Tom Wyllie will be joining us again, entertaining us throughout the Saturday evening.
The event is being held at Delta Hotels Warwick. If you wish to stay in the hotel, please book by calling the hotel directly during office hours on 01926 499 555 option 2 and quoting the Child Growth Foundation convention.
As accommodation bookings are made directly with the venue, they set the room pricing which has increased for 2023. However, they have worked to minimise the impact of the increase on our attendees.

Due to COVID restrictions our 2020 Annual Convention was cancelled. We adapted and moved the event online. It was different, but still let us bring families together in much-needed support.
The glam-tastical theme for the weekend was festival, and the costumes were outrageous! Another wonderful weekend of learning and support.
