FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Travelling in by train/tube is the best option. Euston, Euston Square, King's Cross and St Pancras International are within a few minutes of the venue.

Alternatively, you can take the bus. Dozens of routes run near the venue, including 10, 30, 59, 63, 73 and 91.

There is no on-site parking, however, paid car parks and limited on-street parking is available.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

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

Nope! It'd be helpful if you do bring a printed ticket or show us the ticket confirmation on your phone, but we can still sign you in without them - we will just need the name used during registration!

Unfortunately not. However, we will be sharing snippets during the event on our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter pages, and will also be Live Blogging on our website through the event.
