PRA Members’ day 2015

Each year PRA holds a Members’ Day event. In 2015 this was held on Thursday 15 October at Pera Business Park, Nottingham Road, Melton Mowbray, Leicestershire LE13 0PB, United Kingdom.

PRA invite all their members to take part in the forthcoming Members´ Day event in 2016 – date to be announced. It is your chance to hear inspiring and thought provoking presentations and the opportunity to meet and network with leaders in the industry.

In 2015, the event takes on even greater significance as it was held for the first time at our new premises within the Pera Technology site in Melton Mowbray.

We welcomed Members to our new home and showed attendees around the Technology Centre. Centrally located in the UK, Melton Mowbray is well served by the rail network and is easily accessible by East Midlands, Birmingham and London Stansted airports.
