Answers to your burning questions

  • How do I attend the conference dinner?
    • It’s right at the bottom of the ticket types, don’t forget to add it on to your order!
  • I am unable to afford the registration cost

    • We understand the surrounding COVID situation has financially affected many of you. We are providing a speaker discount and differing ticket types to be as inclusive as possible
    • The policy has been clear from the start, and to remain fair, we must treat all of our presenters with the same conditions
    • There is a large cost associated with running conferences and registrations are one of the ways we cover these costs so please keep this in mind!
  • Will I get a refund on my ticket if I can’t make it due to COVID troubles?
    • Yes, of course, 100% refund if it’s out of your control and you can’t join us
  • Can I present virtually?
    • Yes, purchase a virtual registration! Keep in mind, they’re single-day tickets, if you want access to 2 days, purchase 2 tickets. We’ll be in touch with more information on presenting virtually soon. Our preference is to have you with us in person, so purchase a physical ticket, and we’ll refund you the difference if anything changes! If everyone presents virtually, our delegates won’t have anyone to watch so please join us!
  • I don’t want to attend the full conference, what do I do?
    • The policy is all presenters must register, be that a single day or 3-day registration. You may not attend your presentation unless you purchase a registration to the conference.

    • Enter into the blue ‘enter promo code here’ text into the top left of the check out

    • Let Florian know and we’ll see what we can do!



Slido is the app we are using to facilitate Q&A for your presentations. Factor Q&A time into your presentation if this is something you would like to do. A video has been provided to give you some guidance on how to find your way around the app. Get comfortable with it now, have a play around with it to ensure you know how it works. We will wipe it clean in advance of the conference, and questions will be archived at the end of your session to prepare for the next! We suggest taking the conversation to a LinkedIn group if you want to continue after your session has finished.


All 2021 speakers are required to register for the conference, as is part of the terms and conditions. Please complete your registration via the portal on the right or on eventbrite. You will need to purchase a ticket to secure your place at the conference! The conference dinner is an add-on at the bottom! Don’t forget to secure your spot, places are limited!
