FAQs

Is there any age limit to the event? Can my children attend too?

Babies in arms can be brought for free. We ask that you respect the needs of all attendees by ensuring that the event is not unduly disturbed. There will be baby-friendly seating available for parents or caretakers to move around and attend to their babies. If you let us know in advance that you are bringing your baby we can ensure we make sufficient seating available. There will also be two separate rooms available for our use during the event, should anyone need comfy settees for things like quiet feeding or napping little ones. (Of course, you do not need to leave the lecture room at all for either of these things, but the option will be there).

Toddlers and older children: Practically speaking it is not a suitable occasion for toddlers and young children. Parents bringing toddlers must be prepared to leave the room so as not to disturb other attendees as required. However it is possible for parents/caretakers to share one ticket if they wish to share childcare and lecture attendance.

Please specify how many babies/toddlers you are bringing when purchasing your ticket. There is a selection available at checkout to add babies/toddlers free of charge.

Children that require seating will need to have their own ticket. Please contact us if you have any questions on this.

What can I bring into the event?

You can bring your own snacks and drinks and toys to occupy kids if you wish to bring them.

We highly recommend you have a notepad and pen (or several) with you to take plenty of notes and get the most out of the event.

What's the refund policy?

You can get a full refund up to 7 days prior to the event. After this time we cannot process any refunds.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

You may print your ticket if you wish but it will not be necessary to bring a printout to the event.

Can I update my registration information?

You can update your information in advance of the event by logging into your eventbrite account and processing necessary changes there.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

Please specify the name of the attendee at the time of purchase so we can print an accurate attendee list.

If you wish to transfer your ticket, please update your ticket holder information in your eventbrite account or let us know at least 3 days in advance of the event so we can prepare accordingly.

Do I have to purchase my ticket online or can I purchase at the door?

There will be an option to purchase at the door but we highly recommend to book online to avoid disappointment. We are expecting a full house at this lecture. Also, please be aware that we have to confirm numbers for refreshments upfront with the venue.
