Registration

Registrations are now open.

Please note that, due to the nature of the event, we can accommodate no more than 80 people attending.

There are three different registration packages available:

EARLY BIRD DELEGATE RATE £50*

This package includes:

  • attendance and participation in programmed items including all refreshments;
  • event booklet and other souvenirs in a delegate’s pack; and
  • a chance to pre-book a pitch slot with one of our participating publishers.

(* Will rise to £60.00 from Sunday 1 October 2017)

DEALER £90

Please note that there is a maximum of five dealer’s tables available. Also, due to the layout of the venue, the tables will be in the break-out area outside the main event space.

This package includes:

  • one free DELEGATE registration as described above;
  • one dealer’s table;
  • opportunity to contribute swag (small, lightweight items only, please) to the delegate’s pack; and
  • one full-page free advertisement (not in colour) in the convention booklet, using your artwork.

SPONSOR £120

Since dealers’ tables are limited we are offering this as an alternative, with no table provided.

This package includes:

  • two free DELEGATE registrations as described above;
  • opportunity to contribute swag (small, lightweight items only, please) to the delegate’s pack; and
  • one full-page free advertisement (not in colour) in the convention booklet, using your artwork.

Refreshments

Tea and coffee will be available mid-morning and mid-afternoon, and a buffet lunch will be set up in the ante-room. This is all included in the registration.

The precise details of the food will be settled nearer the time, but staff and management at Manchester Conference Centre are more than happy to adjust the menu to accommodate dietary requirements. If you are vegetarian, diabetic, have allergies or require gluten-free food – or have any other dietary needs we haven’t thought of – please tell us in advance and we’ll pass the information on.

Cancellations

If you cancel your registration before 31 January 2018 we will refund your money in full, less any direct PayPal or other fee.

If you cancel between 1 February and 30 March 2018 we’ll only return 50% – unless we’re able to use your place for someone on the waiting list, in which case you’ll receive a full refund.

After 30 March we will be unable to issue refunds, but you may still transfer your ticket to someone else.

Privacy

In a scheme similar to the one operated by UK Meet, you will have a choice of coloured badges to signify whether you are willing to be photographed or not.

Anyone wanting to record the event for posterity is asked to respect other people’s choices in this.

Dealers’ Tables

Dealers’ tables will be approximately 5ft x 2ft 6 in (150 cm x 75 cm) of table-top.  Posters and other items may be attached to the windows with Blu-tak, but please treat the venue with appropriate respect.

There will be an ‘orphan book table’ – or possible two, depending on demand – where in exchange for a suitable charity donation it will be possible for individuals to use a small amount of selling space.  Details will be announced closer to the time, but if you prefer not to pay for a whole table (or share one with a friend) this may be the solution for you.

  1. Hi

    Warning: I’m probably having a senior moment here.

    I didn’t pick up the details at the UK Meet until late Sunday so didn’t register in person. How do I register now?

    You mention PayPal and I’d love to pay with that, but I can do cheque or card if you prefer.

    1. Hello, Maria! Thank you for your message. I am prey to senior moments myself! So I have tried to make this a bit clearer for all involved.

      In any case: Visit the Register as a Delegate page for details. Pay the early bird fee using PayPal or PayPal.me. Fill in the registration form. And you’re done!

      It will be great to see you there. ♥
