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!
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.
Booking now open!
You can now book online to join us: www.childgrowthfoundation.org/booking-for-convention-2023
If you would like an offline version of the booking form please contact us at email@example.com
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 full itinerary will be made available online as plans progress over the coming months.
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.
We are extremely honoured and grateful to the family of Kate, who had been members of the CGF for many years. Kate had a growth condition and attended the annual convention as a child and teenager, appreciating the information and support.
Sadly, Kate died in 2019. In her memory, Kate’s parents would like to provide funds of £500 a year to enable a family to attend our convention, who might otherwise be unable to afford to do so.
The bursary for the 2023 convention will be for a maximum of £500 and can include: cost of convention, hotel accommodation, convention childcare and reasonable travel.

Convention 2023: Save the date!
It was brilliant to see so many of you at our 2022 convention in September, the first time we have been able to get together for our annual event since 2019. Thanks so much to everyone who joined us, including our attendees, our speakers, entertainers and volunteers,...
Virtual Convention 2020
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.
Annual Convention 2019
The glam-tastical theme for the weekend was festival, and the costumes were outrageous! Another wonderful weekend of learning and support.
