Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Yes, as long as it is transferred to another representative of your organisation. Please let us know about any changes so that we can ensure your delegate has a name badge.
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It is helpful if you can bring your ticket with you as it helps with the registration process. However, if you do not bring the ticket you we'll just need your name.
What if I book but then can't make it?
Spaces are limited, and we want them all to count. It is very frustrating for members who have not been able to attend because all the places are booked, only to discover on the day that were spare spaces. Even though places at the event are free to members, they are not free to the charity, so please only book if you are committing to attending. No shows on the day and cancellations with less than two weeks notice may be subject to a charge of £35 to contribute to the costs incurred.
What are my transport options?
Mainline station: Manchester Piccadilly train station is approx 3 miles from the venue (approx 15mins by car/taxi) with regular buses. Alternatively, you can get there on the Metro which stops outside the venue (Central Park is the stop).
