Loughborough 2014

This time last week, many of us were just getting home after an amazing weekend in Loughborough for NaSTA 2014, the association’s 41st annual Conference and Awards Weekend. The awards night last Saturday saw well-deserved wins and great spirit all round, and brilliant feedback from the speakers and judges who attended.

There was even a live-edited highlights package at the end!

A huge congratulations once again to the team at LSU for hosting us all so spectacularly, to those who picked up awards, and to every member of every station who got involved. Hopefully we’ll see you again next year!
