The TUCO Competitions event had been planned to run alongside the Conference & Exhibition for 2022, but due to the staff shortages in the industry we have postponed the 2022 Competitions event. Competitions will now take place in 2023.

All our confirmed finalists that were due to compete are automatically given the opportunity to compete in 2023.  If you were a confirmed competitor, we have emailed you directly with full details.  If you haven’t received this email, please email [email protected] and we’ll chase that up for you straight away.  We will also be opening for new entries in January 2023 for anyone that missed the chance to enter last year.
