I booked the wrong session; can I change my booking?

Can I register at the event?

Yes, you can but it depends on space availability. Just come in advance so we have time to register you on the day before the session begins.

Where can I find information about the event programme?

Are there any breaks between sessions?

There will be a 15-minute break between each session. However, there is a session on the hour, every hour, so if you’d like a longer break you might need to skip a session. Feel free to use the break to go to The Hub to speak to our employers!
