Booking for the 2016 conference is now closed!

If you have booked your place, please go to the conference overview page where you can download your conference guide, and to the programme page to download the programme.

Booking for more than one person

If you wish to book for more than one person, you will need to make separate bookings, each using a different email address. This is because each person attending will be allocated their own booking reference number (this number is needed to book your sessions and excursions).


You can either pay when you book via PayPal (with a PayPal account or a debit/credit card), or you can send payment afterwards by cheque or bank transfer.

Gala dinner

Sorry, the gala dinner is fully booked.

Optional panels/talks/workshops and pitch sessions

Once you have booked, you can then use your booking reference number to choose the panels, talks, workshops and pitch sessions you wish to attend by completing the form on this page.


Sorry, the excursions are all fully booked.

Please read the terms and conditions below before booking.
