Early bird registrations open 30 January 2018 and close 13 March 2018. Early bird registrations must be paid in full prior to the close of the early bird registration period for the discounted rate to apply (13 March 2018). If you are paying by invoice please ensure that the payment is processed during this period or your registration amount will automatically increase to the standard rate.

Speaker registrations

Conference speakers are entitled to register at the discounted speaker’s rate. You must register prior to 16 July 2018 to take advantage of this rate.

Shared registrations

Please note that if you are choosing to share your registration you will only be issued with one name badge, satchel and handbook. We can issue the badge in your organisation name but you will need to notify us of this during the registration process.

Please ensure all people attending under a shared registration are aware of the name badge and bring a printed copy of the registration confirmation. Only one person under a shared registration may attend at any one time. Badges should be passed onto the next registrant or returned to the registration desk at the end of the session. Attendees must hold a badge to attend and badges will not be reissued if not returned.
