*Please note that children (under 18) have to be accompanied by an adult and can only register onsite.
*School groups pre-registration is strongly recommended to facilitate a seamless journey for your class arrival, avoiding queues at registration desks. Please enquire here to arrange.

How do I register a group (over 18)?

Due to GDPR, anyone over 18 years old attending the show needs to be registered separately, so please ensure everyone registers themselves. Please register with a business or institution email address unique to you. Visitors registering with the same email address as a colleague will be unable to access our services.

When will I receive my badge?

We will be sending you your badge along with key information for your arrival two weeks before the event. Please ensure you register and print your badge before attending – this is crucial, as we have implemented a reduced-contact registration system so there will be very limited opportunity to do this onsite.

Can I register upon arrival?

We recommend you register to receive your e-badge and print this before arriving onsite. We will provide a badge holder and you can then scan it at the door. If you do not have your e-badge printed, just show the e-badge on your phone at the registration desk and they can print you a copy. Note there may be a queue and a delay in entry. 

What if I have forgotten my entry badge when I arrive at the show?
