Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Please bring ID. There is no minimum age requirement but this is an academic conference. Given the public nature of the venue you may well wish to bring family along and have children present for some period. Chat to us about manging this and we will do our best to support you.
What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Public transport from London is good. The very easiest and nicest way to get there from central London is to get the Clipper from Embankment and come along the river. You get to see all the sights, and the ferry drops you at the Naval College, perhaps ten minutes walk from the National Maritime Museum. If you need assistance working out the best route for a wheel chair please let us know.
How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org We are all in full time employment and response may be slow. We will endeavour to check the email weekly until February when we will check it daily.
What's the refund policy?
Refunds can be requested up to the 1st February 2017
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Can I update my registration information?
Is my registration fee or ticket transferrable?
Yes up to Friday 17th February.
Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Only if a formal transfer has been made by 17th February.
