  • The evening buffet on day 1 is included in the fee and those attending day 2 only, are most welcome to attend the evening buffet on day one. Just make sure you register for it.

HOW CAN I REGISTER? 
Registration will open in December 2017. Further details on how to register will be posted then.

DO I AS LECTURER NEED TO REGISTER TO THE FESTIVAL?
As lecturer you still need to register to the conference. This is important for several reasons:

  • We need to know which seminars you wish to attend other than your own and please make sure you also choose the seminar in which you are the lecturer.
  • We need to know if you are attending the buffet and if you have food allergies.
  • We need to know if you are staying the entire conference.

I'M ONLY ATTENDING THE DAY I'M GIVING A LECTURE AND I'M THE ONLY LECTURER IN MY SESSION. WHY DO I STILL NEED TO REGISTER MY INVOICE ADDRESS?
We still need to know your invoice address. This is merely a technicality which is needed for our customer database system. You will not be invoiced. (Note: this does not apply to seminars with more than one lecturer. Lecturer 2 and 3 etc will be invoiced).
