How will seats be allocated?

Royal Albert Hall

Seating in the Royal Albert Hall will be allocated on a first come, first served basis within the tired ticketing section you have selected. A group will be allocated seats together dependent on the area of seats selected. You can register for a group by adding new delegates to an existing booking at any time. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that groups who book separately will be allocated seats together.

HTB Brompton Road

Your E-Ticket will not include an allocated seat, therefore seating in the HTB Brompton Road venue will be on a first come, first served basis on both days of the conference.

St Peter’s Brighton

More information to follow.

Guests attending the conference at either the Royal Albert Hall, HTB Brompton Road and St Peter’s Brighton venues will be able to choose a seminar on each day of the conference, on a first come first served basis.
