SOA24 Congress

SOA24 social programme 

We have a full social programme available for our delegates to enable mulitple options to relax,  unwind, network and have a good laugh.

SOA party 

On Wednesday 19 June 2024, our legendary SOA party will be hosted at Oh Me Oh My.  Located opposite the city’s iconic Three Graces, West Africa House lives in the heart of historic downtown Liverpool. Built in the 1920s by Briggs, Wolstenholme and Thorley, it was home to the former bank of West Africa. 

In true SOA party tradition, the evening allows you to let your hair down and enjoy great music, all the banter and dance the night away with your friends and colleagues both old and new.

Tickets are £25 ex VAT and come with three free drinks tokens to really help you get into the party spirit. 

Over the years we have seen some cracking shapes being cut on the dance floor and even seen a few dance offs! So make sure you bolt on the SOA party when purchasing your ticket or add it to you booking later down the line and join us for a fabulous night.

7pm - until late

5K run 

Join in on our annual tradition of a delegate fun run held on the second day of SOA.

The run will take you from Duke's Dock at 6.30am and finish at the Brunswick Business Centre - a mile and a half away. 

The route will take you on a scenic path along the River Mersey and past the docks of Liverpool exploring the wonderful city we are holding SOA24 in.

Open to runners of all experience and paces, all you need to do is turn up at Duke's Dock and join the pack for a leisurely jog to greet the day.

Get your trainers on, do your stretches and run with your colleagues and friends - ready, set, go!
