Social Programme

Please note that if you do not select social function tickets during the registration process (even when included in the registration cost), we may not be able to accommodate your request for tickets on site. We are required to give final numbers in advance of the meeting, and the earlier we are advised the better. So please check your registration confirmation carefully for your selections, and let the Conference Managers know if changes are required.
